This chapter looks at media ownership and concentration in Turkey. Once it has completed an overview of the Turkish media scene, the rest of the chapter describes the major media industry firms (conglomerates, religious community/sectarian media), print media (newspapers, magazine publishing), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, multichannel TV platforms), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), Internet media (Internet Service Providers, search engines, online news market, social media), and international ownership. Overall, Turkish media markets are dominated by a handful of vertically integrated industrial conglomerates with cross-ownership in almost every segment, often allied with influential religious groups. Despite the media market being liberalized on paper, due to political, economic, and regulatory factors, it remains highly concentrated, with no real ownership controls in place (excluding TV and radio). Major firms are, in Telecom, Turk Telecom, Turkcell, and Vodafone. In print and audiovisual media, Dogan, Cukurova, Turksat, and Turkuvaz.

Keywords:   Turkish media market, news market, conglomerates, print media, audiovisual media, telecommunications, Internet, Turk Telecom, Turkcell, Dogan, Cukorova, Turkuvaz
