Anke Schäferkordt has announced it will leave the RTL media group. He has worked for the Group for 27 years. Your successor is already known.
An era ends at RTL: 13 years later, the head of the German television channel Anke Schäferkordt goes to the end of the year. "After more than 27 years, leaving the Mediengruppe RTL is not an easy step," said the 55-year-old. A fast transition is the best for RTL.
The decision was "shared in the best common agreement," the company said. Schäferkordt withdrew last year as co-chief of the Luxembourg television company and focused on German affairs. Your successor comes from your house. Bernd Reichart, Chief Executive Officer of VOX, is promoted to Germany's RTL head.
Schäferkordt also led Vox before joining RTL in 2005, where he quickly took over the entire German broadcasting family. Since 2012 she has also been co-chair of the parent company listed RTL. With the remainder of RTL, Schäferkordt also left the council of the parent company Bertelsmann. Anyone who will go there for them will be decided "in a timely manner," Gütersloh's press agency said.
Bernd Reichart becomes her successor
The 44-year-old Reichart comes from the sports industry. Allgäuer started his career with UFA sports marketing and then spent a year working for the Sportfive Rights Agency. Prior to joining Vox in 2013, he was responsible for up to five TV channels on the Spanish RTL channel Antena 3.
