The government of the President, Gabriel Boric, appointed the journalist and former director of communications of the National Television Council, Andrea Fresard, as the new president of the board of TVN.
Through a press release, the Executive informed about the decision, where the 49-year-old journalist will assume the presidency of the board of the state signal. It should be remembered that this measure is direct and should not have the approval of another branch of the State, unlike the presence of Rodrigo Cid in the same board that must have the permission of Congress.
