The World: Copenhagen - TV2 Danmark sheds 200 jobs to save EUR27m

TV2 Danmark, the Danish government-owned TV station, is making more than 200 of its 1,100 employees redundant in an attempt to make EUR27 million in savings.

The group has also agreed a partnership deal with SBS Broadcasting, which will run TV2's national radio station, TV2 Radio, from the beginning of July, subject to approval by competition and media watchdogs.

TV2 Danmark, which made a loss of EUR29 million last year, will produce news and sports programming for the new radio channel.
