Most media companies in Albania, apart from the public radio television broadcaster RTSH, are private enterprises. All companies, apart from the mother company ‘3 DS & AF Entertainment LLC’, which owns Syri TV, and Syri FM, are registered either as Limited Liability Companies (Sh.p.k) or Joint Stock Companies (Sh.a) and are based in Albania. ‘3 DS & AF Entertainment LLC’ is owned by the non-profit “Qendra për Informim të Hapur’ [Centre for Open Information] headed by journalist Çlirim Peka. One newspaper – the daily Tema, is registered as a sole proprietorship of its owner Mero Baze. Some of the outlets are clustered in media groups, including Top Media, Klan Group, Focus Media Group, Panorama Group, Focus Group, Union Group, or Media Vizion. These groups are not always legally registered entities and have a branding purpose to identify a group of companies that are linked to one media owner or family. The biggest print media group is controlled by businessman Irfan Hysenbelliu, which publishes the dailies Panorama and Gazeta Shqiptare, the sports daily Panorama Sport and the monthly magazine Psikologjia. The biggest broadcasting group is the Klan Group, which owns the national television stations TV Klan, Klan Plus and Radio Klan and has major affiliated interests in digital broadcasting and media production.
