STV still without new boss

THE PUBLIC STV channel remains without a director as the station’s council failed to agree on a new boss from three candidates in the second round of elections yesterday.

Czech native Radim Hreha, who spent some time with the Czech public station, came the closest to election with the support of 6 members of the 15-member council, 4 shy of the 10 votes he needed.

A new round of elections must now be called, and will be governed by the new rules of the amended STV Act approved yesterday by parliament, which says among other things that a simple majority on the STV Council will be enough to elect a director.
