  • A publishing, broadcasting and marketing entity which creates a whole range of customisable music-, news- and talk-based radio stations
  • A global and innovative offering for creating turnkey radio stations:
    – In-store radio stations
    – Company radio stations
    – Regional radio stations
    – Event radio stations
    – Brand radio stations
    – TV radio concept
  • A concept which creates and strengthens the social ties between staff, clients and partners
  • A company that provides its clients with support on a daily basis (design, station management, consulting, training, technical and artistic direction, production, uploading and broadcasting)

METTA is a real brand communications tool and this project is very much in line with our development strategy and our goal of diversifying and innovating“, says Jean-Christophe Lestra, CEO of the Music Radio Division in France and overseas.
