The Director General of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) Ingrid Deltenre has met with Barbara Stanisławczyk-Żyła, President of the Board of Directors and Editor-in-Chief of Polskie Radio (PR), Jacek Kurski, President of the Board of Telewizja Polska (TVP), and Krzysztof Czabański, Poland’s Deputy Culture Minister Responsible for Media Reform.
The meeting was held at EBU Headquarters in Geneva on Monday 25 January. It was the first visit of the newly appointed top managers of TVP and PR to the EBU.
The meeting was an occasion to exchange views and share best practices on the role of public service media in the digital age. In particular, the parties discussed Poland's new media law, the digitalization of radio broadcasting and TV sports rights.
The EBU welcomed the open discussions; both sides agreed to keep all channels of communication open in the future. The EBU will continue to involve TVP and Polish Radio in all EBU operations and activities, as has always been the case.
