French media regulator the CSA has named the current executive director of Orange France, Delphine Ernotte-Cunci, as the new president of public broadcaster France Télévisions, replacing Rémy Pflimlin when his current term ends.
In its note on the decision to appoint her, the CSA highlighted her “solid management skills”, her “strong attachment to public service” and her awareness of changing video consumption habits.
Ernotte-Cunci beat off competition from a shortlist of seven candidates drawn from an initially much wider field of applicants.
In the final stage of the process, the CSA chose her over Pascal Josèphe, the founder of International MédiaConsultants Associés (IMCA) and a former head of TF1.
