Murr Television (marketed and known as MTV Lebanon) is a Lebanese television station based in Naccache, Metn District.

History[edit]

Michel Gabriel El Murr, CEO, son of Gabriel Murr

Founded in 1991 by Gabriel Murr, a Lebanese businessman and politician.[1]

MTV was shut down in 2002 as it was found guilty of violating article 68 of the electoral law of 1999 which bans propaganda during the election process[1] but, since other Lebanese channels did not comply with the law either, some observers suspect that the closure was due to MTV’s criticism of the Lebanese government and of Syria.[2]

In 2005, the Lebanese parliament decided to amend article 68 and reopen the station after the Syrian troops withdrew from Lebanon and the anti-Syrian opposition coalition won a majority in Lebanon’s parliament, but the station remained closed.[1]

The station reopened its doors seven years later, on April 7, 2009, two months before the 2009 parliamentary elections.<
