MALTA – There are severe problems in the Press Centre at the MCC which cause problems to all journalists here doing their work, reports and reviews.
Besides the fact that the press centre was suppose to be fully operative as EBU announced via e-mail as of Sunday afternoon, nothing was ready (not even the banners in the press area and the press conference area).
While using full air conditioning the last days (now at least they closed it) the monitors are not open on time. This made us miss the first two countries yesterday and so far the first country today.
The backstage disappointment was that no official program or media handbook provided this year besides a poor PDF spread via e-mail the very last minute by the Eurovision Family events team!
