It’s all go at Colombian national broadcaster RCN who has appointed a new CEO, and has renewed with Teleset a three-year strategic production agreement.
Rodrigo Pardo García-Peña is the new man at the helm, a renowned journalist with a vast experience working with information media and news analysis. The executive previously worked as a Colombian ambassador in Venezuela and France; a minister of foreign relations; the director of Cambio magazine; editor and sub-manager of newspaper 'El Tiempo'; and director of 'El Espectador' newspaper.
