Bosnia & Herzegovina: Bhrt Will Not Be Broadcasting Eurovision 2023!

BHRT, the national broadcaster of Bosnia and Herzegovina will not broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 which takes place in Liverpool, United Kingdom next week.

BHRT has confirmed that the Eurovision Song Contest will not be broadcast by the broadcaster in Bosnia and Herzegovina, marking 7 years since the contest was last broadcast in the country. The most recent Eurovision-related show broadcast by BHRT was Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light in 2020, the special show organised by the EBU for the cancellation of the 2020 Contest due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

BHRT is a member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) but has been blocked from accessing the Union’s services due to the organisation’s high debt. So from December 2016 the country is unable to compete and/or broadcast the competition.

The country’s last participation was in Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm. The country was represented by Dalal, Deen, Ana Rucner and Jala with the song “Ljubav je”, but the country failed to qualify for the grand final for the first time as it finished 11th in the first semi-final.

So far, the non-participating in Eurovision 2023 countries that have confirmed the broadcast of this year’s contest are the following:

  • Chile – Canal 13
  • North Macedonia – MRT
  • Slovakia – Radio_FM
  • United States – Peacock
