Greek broadcaster’s president, deputy quit in fresh upheaval

The president and managing director of overhauled state broadcaster NERIT, Antonis Makrydimitris, and his deputy Rodolfos Moronis resigned on Thursday just four months after the former replaced Giorgos Prokopakis at the helm of the organization.

The new wave of upheaval at NERIT, which started operating in May following the abrupt closure of ERT in June 2013, came just a day before the deadline for the submission of applications for the broadcaster’s managing board.

In a posting on his Twitter account, Moronis appeared to take a swipe at the political leadership that installed NERIT’s directors.

“If you declare that you want to create something independent, objective and of good quality but you don’t mean it, don’t assign the job to someone who does,” he said.
