Public-service broadcaster Slovak Television (STV) managed to fully implement only three out of 26 measures proposed by a report on the state of public television by its governing body, the STV Council.
According to Ján Šmihula, STV news service’s editor-in-chief, the reason was financial. “This is a result of an absolute lack of funds,” Šmihula said at a meeting of the STV Council on Tuesday, November 16, where he presented his report on applying the measures proposed eight months ago. He said, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that the three programmes which underwent changes – Five Minutes to Twelve, News at 16:00 and the biweekly Voice of Europe – have brought about larger audiences since their structure was changed.
