Delphine Ernotte-Cunci and Petr Dvořák were re-elected as president and vice-president of the Eurpean Broadcasting Union (EBU) executive board, respectively.
The election for the organism took place during the General Assembly held last week in Dubrovnik (Croatia), with the votes of Director Generals of EBU members.
Mykola Chernotytskyi, from Ukranian public broadcaster UA:PBC, and Kajta Wildermuth, from the German Bayerischer Rundfunk, take up the vacant positions on the EBU’s executive board. Noel Curran continues as EBU Director General for a further six years.
The new mandate of Delphine Ernotte-Cunci and Petr Dvořák starts next January. Delphine Ernotte-Cunci was elected as vice-president in 2019 and got to the current place last year. Petr Dvořák was elected as vice-president last year after spending six years in the EBU’s executive board.
On the other hand, Mykola Chernotytskyi and Kajta Wildermuth are newcomers to the board. Mykola Chernotytskyi was UA:PBC’s Head of the Managing Board for just over a year, while Kajta Wildermuth was Director General of Bayerischer Rundfunk since February of last year.
The EBU’s executive board has the responsibility of ensuring the implementation of the organization’s strategy and policies. Among many other things, EBU is the organizer of the Eurovision events (Eurovision Song Contest, Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Eurovision Choir and Eurovision Young Musicians).
