Florin Bercea, special administrator of Realitatea Media, announced chiefs of departments that Cozmin Gusa (shareholder at GMG MediaBox, the main creditor of Realitatea Media) takes over the editorial management, starting October 1st until December 15th.
Gusa’s decisions in his new position will be mandatory for all people involved in the editorial activities of the company.
Gusa said, for Paginademedia.ro, that all content and broadcasting decisions will be subjected to his own filter. According to him, being both editorial manager and Realitatea TV’s creditor aren’t conflicting qualities, as creditor’s interest is to relaunch the company and the recovery must come “from increasing the quality of the product”.
“I took over (as editorial manager – n.r) from the need for trust’s editorial activity to start being better coordinated and more precise oriented and, after December 15th, I will decide the new management team, a thing bound to be easy by then, considering the future common experience with people from Realitatea”, Gusa said, for Paginademedia.ro.
When it comes of a “more precise orientation”, Gusa said wants to bringing more audience and awareness to match the status of a TV that used to be number one news provider in Romania.
