    Employees of Greek state broadcaster ERT held protests outside the studio of the new TV station that will soon replace them.

    ERT was shut down by the government last month as part of their efforts to cut costs and reduce national debt.

    The new station began transmitting on Wednesday on the channel formerly used by ERT.

    It aims to be fully operational within 3 months.
