Murr Television (marketed and widely known as MTV Lebanon) is a Lebanese television station based in Naccache, Metn District. MTV was founded by Gabriel Murr. His son, Michel Gabriel El Murr, is now the Chairman and CEO.[1]

History[edit]

MTV first opened in October 1991.[1] It was closed down on 4 September 2002 by the Lebanese government due to its criticisms of then-President Emile Lahoud.[2] On August 16, 2005, the Lebanese Parliament voted unanimously for the amendment of the Electoral Law, after which the rights of MTV were re-instituted.[3] In 2009 it re-opened, three years after Syrian forces left Lebanon.[1]
