The affected employees will be transferred to the new company called Mediahub that will produce content for other customers in addition to MTV. MTV, not to be confused with its international music namesake, was a pioneer in Finnish commercial broadcasting. It currently operates TV and radio channels as well as network services. ERM has previously reported a restructuring in MTV Media in 2012.

The following reductions have been indicated: 54 positions will be cut from MTV and 28 jobs will be cut from MTV's news production company Mediahub.
