The very first weekend right after Patricia Schlesinger, head of the two-country station, announced her resignation from the ARD presidency, the station’s personnel council urged a contemporary start off.
The accusations versus Schlesinger — compliance violations, nepotism, wasteful managing of taxpayer contributions, which include creating RBB’s new digital media residence — are even now in the area.
According to the intranet statement, the withdrawal opens the chance for RBB to restart. “But only if the slate is really clean up now.”

Referring to issues from interviewees and close friends (“What’s wrong with you?”), it is pointed out that the ongoing authorized clarification is not satisfactory to reassure persons. “Our crisis would make it obvious that a lot of things are not doing the job at RBB. We miss out on a great deal of tact: in the inventive director, in the management, in the board of directors, but also in elements of the administrative and broadcasting boards.”
“To regain our reliability”
RBB’s personnel council finds it totally unacceptable that Wolf-Dieter Wolf, who has also been criticized for consulting contracts, only will allow his chairmanship of the board of directors to rest, but not his term as a member of the board of directors. In addition, he carries on to head RBB Media’s supervisory board, a spokesman for the station verified on Saturday when asked about Tagesspiegel.
The new commence “to get back our credibility” consists of, amid other things, an objective overview of present structures, which phone calls into query the need for a new electronic media residence, as very well as manage bodies “that truly do independent management and are independent from management and in which society and personnel can have confidence in.”
The director still has a good deal to make clear so that items turn into calmer and far more trusted amongst her employees. On the afternoon of this Monday, the Broadcasting Council will keep an amazing session owing to the ongoing complaints towards its director.
