The Latvian experience in the past decade shows the impact of economic and
political change on the media sector. While the market economy brought opportunity
and free enterprise, it also brought the impact of economic disasters on the media.
Political changes enabled the abolishment of censorship and state control, but the

not only journalists but trained professional business managers as well.
