Scots mull GMTV

SCOTTISH MEDIA Group has confirmed it is considering a number of options in respect of its 20 per cent holding in broadcaster GMTV. "No decision has yet been taken in respect of any of these options," Scottish Media said yesterday in response to recent speculation.

In the past, Scottish Media has said it could sell its entire stake in GMTV or even buy out the other partners. Carlton and Granada also hold 20 per cent stakes in GMTV, while Walt Disney and Guardian Media Group have 25 per cent.
