Alexander Zharov, general director of Gazprom Media Holding, said: “Gazprom Media is a leader in the entertainment and sports television segment in Russia. A powerful production base has been formed, vast expertise and experience in launching successful projects has been accumulated, GPM RTV television channels are the flagships of domestic broadcasting. The results of our entertainment assets have a huge impact on the operating and financial performance of the holding. In today’s unstable situation, when the industry is undergoing serious transformational changes, we made a logical and informed decision to strengthen the holding’s participation in managing this segment and increase the involvement of Gazprom Media management in the strategic and operational management of the RTV GPM. I am convinced that the new managing directors – Ruben Oganesov and Svetlana Fefilova – will be able to help the sub-holding team take our segment of entertainment TV to a whole new level”.
Vladimir Chopov and Sergey Shishkin, who held the positions of managing directors of GPM RTV, have decided to leave the company.
