On June 14, 2019 the Ukrainian politician Taras Kozak became a new and a sole owner of the TV broadcasters of ZIK TV channel - of Most TV and TRK New Communications. Therefore, Kozak owns three TV channels: 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK.
The owner of NOVOSTI media holding Taras Kozak: “Ukrainian TV viewer is deeply politicized, and demanding. The viewer, who has to be treated with respect. For me, the purchase of ZIK TV channel is a meaningful and pragmatic step. Informational broadcasting in Ukraine is ahead of many world major news outlets with its mobility, interest of the audience, image. Having received ZIK, I can build the largest network of the informational broadcasters, which from the point of view of the resources makes them less costly and at the same time creates their large capitalization as an asset. This asset is called informational media holding NOVOSTI. For its development and management, I have invited one of the strongest media producers of the country – Olexiy Semenov”.
General Producer of media holding NOVOSTI Olexiy Semenov: “The business proposal of Taras Romanovych is a big honor for me. Five years ago, me and my team were building 112 Ukraine, then I was doing a rebranding of NewsOne. The majority of the personnel of these TV channels are my close and loved ones. And you know, I am happy to come back to them. I hope, it won’t be a disappointment for them. Now, I am working on the conception of the restart of ZIK channel and I will be happy about future cooperation. As many hosts and personnel of ZIK are my colleagues from the previous channels. We are on the same emotional wave. “Association for Ukraine” – this is the main message of the channel’s conception. And we will try to fill it with these beautiful feelings – love and care about all the people of the big country”.
