Radio ZET Description:
Radio ZET Polish commercial radio station. The current owner of the station is Eurozet. Radio ZET started broadcasting on 28 September 1990, being the first commercial radio station in Warsaw and the second in Poland after RMF FM in Krakow.
Radio Zet started broadcasting on 28 September 1990 as "Radio Gazeta" and it was the first private radio in Warsaw. Its originator, founder and first controller was Andrzej Woyciechowski. Its co-founders were Leszek Stafiej, vice-controller of the station and Janusz Weiss. The first contributors were Maria Wiernikowska, Małgorzata Moszczeńska, Marzena Chełminiak, Agata Niewiarowska, Jovanka Cirlic and Jagna Skoczylas as well as Krzysztof Skowronski, Piotr Krzyzanowski and Marcin Gugulski (in Studio Zet and in the commercial departament). Radio ZET was created thanks to Adam Michnik's support, financial help of a French organization Euro Libe and technical help of a French radio station RFI. At the first stage of its activity the radio was using broadcasting and studio equipment lent by RFI. The transmitter was set on the top floor of Hotel Marriott. At night, the programme of RFI in French was relayed - Radio ZET was switched on and off manually. During the first days of broadcasting engineer Leszek Michniewicz (a contributor to Third Program of Polish Radio at that time) offered technical help. Soon the technical servicing was taken over by Michał Silski and Andrzej Kijanowski.
