Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov bestowed the Bulgarian National Radio with the President's Badge of Honour. This happened at an official ceremony in the Coat of Arms Hall in the Presidency on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the radio. The prize was given to the radio's director general Valeri Todorov. President Parvanov explained that the radio deserved this distinction due to its leading position in the Bulgarian radio air in covering the social, political and cultural life of Bulgaria and its extreme speed in informing its audience. The President underlined the important role of the BNR in maintaining the connection with Bulgarian emigrants abroad. He also stated that the radio was an important factor for consolidating the reputation of Bulgaria worldwide with its broadcasts in 11 languages that could be heard far beyond Bulgarian national borders. The 75th anniversary of the Bulgarian National Radio was marked with a festive concert at Ivan Vazov National Theatre and a ceremony for granting its traditional annual awards named after the radio's first director Sirak Skitnik. Earlier today, a special postal stamp was validated, dedicated to the radio's anniversary.
