Bulgaria have been announced as the host country for Junior Eurovision 2015. The country which only returned to Junior Eurovision last year will now hold their first ever Eurovision event.
BNT met with EBU officials today to discuss the future of the Bulgarian national broadcaster and also to confirm the hosting of the 2015 contest. The Head of BNT, Vyara Ankova said this evening that
The most important topic standing before BNT is precisely the organization of children’s Eurovision and I am glad that we got great support in this regard. Hence, today I can say that Bulgaria and national television will be the host of this prestigious event.
Bulgaria has been selected as the host country after Italy withdrew from hosting after being unable to secure funding. It is assumed that the bid that Bulgaria won over to host this years contest was last years host country Malta.
