Of the three newcomers, Estonian-language Hit FM will begin broadcasting in Harju, Tartu and Pärnu counties, Novoje Radio, in Russian, will air in Tallinn and Harju County. Jumor FM, a humor-based radio station also in Russian, will replace Russian-language Euro FM (104.9), which has been in operation since 2004..
