A lack of agreement between international French-speaking channel TV5Monde’s shareholders has led to the broadcaster postponing the appointment of a new managing director.

The successor of Marie-Christine Saragosse, who becomes AEF’s new CEO, should have been announced on 16 October. The governments of the five shareholding states that include France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and Québec, asked for a delay before making their choice.

Marie-Christine Saragosse will ensure the continuity of the management until the appointment of a new MD, around November 14th, it’s announced.
