ERT plans to hire 206 new employees, minister says


An additional 206 employees will be hired at ERT to cover needs in crucial areas of the state broadcaster, Digital Policy Minister Nikos Pappas has said.

“These hirings are not a waste of money, but will actually help us save money,” Pappas told Parliament on Friday, adding that ERT currently relies extensively on private broadcast crews.

The state broadcaster has been widely criticized for political nepotism and profligate spending.
