Turkey should soon return to Eurovision. Not just because the contest needs more televotefriendly entries, or because the more the merrier. But because their shouting-from-afar is getting annoying.
National broadcaster TRT has confirmed that Turkey will not return to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016. TRT states on their Teletext page: “There is currently no intention to return to the contest, even though we still see the relevance of Eurovision.”
Turkish broadcaster TRT has told the EBU that they definitely have decided not to return to the Eurovision Song Contest next year. The Turkish broadcaster has released a statement regarding the next contest in Copenhagen.
The chances of Turkey returning to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 are slim. TRT-manager Ibrahim Sahin told the Turkish newspaper Radikal that he is only willing to make a comeback if the EBU changes the voting system.
