CBC Metropolis Radio

The initial legal entity was established in 2005 under the name "Radio Ros", but Darko Gelev and Mile Gjosevski took it over in 2007 and renamed it "Metropolis Radio". The new owners then changed the programming scheme of the medium, which until then was focused on folk music.
