STV still without a budget for 2009

STV COUNCIL, the governing body of the public service broadcaster Slovak Television (STV) failed to approve a modified draft budget and programing plan of the broadcaster on July 14. This was a version updated by STV Director General Štefan Nižňanský, the SITA newswire reported.

The STV must now submit a new, third draft budget and program plan by August 14. STV Council head Martin Kákoš said that the material submitted by Nižňanský has accepted the council’s requirement of a balanced budget by the end of 2009. However, the draft counted on state compensation of €3.907 million, which is uncertain at present.

“The budget counts on money that STV does not have at its disposal at the moment,” he said, as quoted by SITA.

In June, the government pumped €6.5 million into STV. Kákoš said the draft failed to deal with increasing expenditures for both external and internal production.
