Samoa's TV3 sold to local commercial broadcaster
5:25 pm GMT+12, 10/04/2018, Samoa

One of Samoa's commercial television services has been sold to a local broadcaster for an undisclosed amount.
 
The manager of Apia Broadcasting limited, Verona Parker, said the name of the new owner will be announced soon.
 
However, a reliable source said a meeting was held last weekend between the staff of TV3 and representatives of Radio Polynesia Limited who then bought the television station.
 
Radio Polynesia is owned by Maposua Rudolf Keil, a prominent local businessman.
 
The owner of Apia Broadcasting is a former politician and another business operator, Hans Joachim Keil, also known as Joe Keil.
