On Monday it became known that the Flemish government, the CEO, Paul Lembrechts out. The reason for this? Lembrechts wasn’t the cause of friction within the board of directors to solve the problem. Earlier it became known that there was a conflict between Peter’s Claes, and the rest of the executive board at odds with each other were. Claes was adopted by the board of directors in a non-active status. The conflict was not resolved and, therefore, decided that a minister on Media, Paul Lembrechts, to discharge, and Leo Hellemans as the interim CEO to the point.

The removal of Lembrechts has been going down the wrong way by the staff of the belgian’s shot. Lembrechts has always staff around. The Flemish government wants the belgian in the next few years, more savings are made, and that it would have an impact on the quality of the program. The removal of Lembrechts is only a few days to go before the Flemish parliament in the negotiations for the new contract to start. “It is unacceptable to us”, say the trade unions of public service broadcasting and to know. As of Monday, there will also be stopped. What are the impact of strike action on the screen, it will have been a Tuesday morning are still not clear.
