The Slovak Television (STV) Council is due to select its new chairman on Wednesday, October 27, the TASR newswire reported.
Chairman Martin Kákoš resigned from the post in mid-October explaining his decision by pointing to criticism published in the media as well as the planned merger of STV and Slovak Radio (SRo).
"My resignation doesn't mean that the Council has been making mistakes," he stressed at an extraordinary Council session, as quoted by TASR.
At its next session, the Council is due to deal with STV's budget proposal and its programme concept for next year which was submitted by STV general director Štefan Nižňanský. The supervisory commission warned recently that STV's losses could reach €18 million at the end of 2010.
