Richard Rybniček, the current head of private television station JOJ, was elected to lead the indebted public channel STV by 125 votes of 142 members of parliament present in the chamber.
Rybniček has said he plans to raise concessionary user fees by 30 to 35 per cent, to review contracts with external production agencies that are alleged to have allowed management to strip station assets, and to increase the family and educational content of programming.
