Superstacja is a Polish TV channel dedicated to news and entertainemnt, created on 2 October 2006. Its owner is STER, a company affiliated with the owner of Polsat, Zygmunt Solorz-Żak.

History[edit]

2006-2009[edit]

In March 2006, the National Broadcasting Council awarded a license to Superstacja. The channel's first editor was Sławomir Kińczyk, who resigned in 2007.

Superstacja was launched by Astro Sp. z.o.o. and K&R Enterprises Sp. z.o.o., linked to television producer Ryszard Krajewski. The first company was notorious for producing Familiada, the Polish adaptation of Family Feud. Initially, financial assistence was assured by an agreement with Capital Partners, but the company resigned from the project. From launch to June 30, 2009, its president was Ryszard Krajewski.

The channel started broadcasting on October 2, 2006. Initially, the idea was to create a tabloid television channel. Among these contents were reports on showbiz stars and crime. Gradually, however, Superstacja started to add more political programming into its schedule. Notable political commentators during this time included Janina Paradowska, Eliza Michalik, Wojciech Mazowiecki and Waldemar Jan Dziak, later Piotr Gembarowski and Mariusz Max Kolonko.

In May 2007, 50% of Superstacja's stocks were sold to Ster, linked to Heronim Ruta, a Cyfrowy Polsat shareholder e and close associate of Zygmunt Solorz-Żak. The agreement between both parties had as its goal recapitalize the company and strengthen its brand in the market.

2009-2018[edit]

In March 2009, Ster had controlled all of Superstacja's stocks. A few weeks later, Ryszard Krajewski left and was replaced by Wojciech Mazowiecki.On July 15, 2009, Adam Stefanik was named president of the council of Superstacja.
