The VRT comes with a remarkable solution for the guidance of Canvas. Since november last year, when Reinhilde Weyns stopped as network manager of Canvas, had the transmitter, no captain on board. Olivier Goris, who has spent several years on the steering wheel for One, will now also Canvas under his wing.
The VRT-top opts for a general network manager for Eén and Canvas. “The past years have One and Canvas with success their own identity are scrutinised and they were more supplementary to each other. The cooperation between the two nets is the recent months become more intense. With the team of One, and the team of Canvas is Olivier Goris continue on this path’, it sounds in the press release.
That this is a possible scenario, it had been a while in the course of the VRT to hear. Some people saw there a doomsday scenario for Canvas in. Peter Claes, general director of Media and Production at VRT, ensures that ‘One and Canvas, each with their own identity preserved’. “One feels and nourishes the heart of Flanders and is more than ever the transmitter that connects people. Canvas takes on its own profound way, a unique place in the Flemish media landscape.”
According to Claes, “the close collaboration between Eén and Canvas is a logical step’. “We believe that both brands are today from a single, overarching look better able to tackle the challenges of the future. Those challenges are diverse: how can we with a more limited budget our mission as a public service broadcaster up to fulfill? How can we all Flemish people continue to reach, even though they use the media sometimes in a different way? How can we impact to retain more and more international competition? By an interaction of talent and knowledge, we ensure also the high quality level that the Flemish are of the two systems is expected.’
