"We are delighted to welcome Noel Curran as the new Director General of the EBU", said Jean-Paul Philippot, President of the EBU (RTBF/BE). "Noel was the candidate of choice in what was an extremely strong list of candidates. He impressed us with his sound public service values, his operational experience and his understanding of the public service media ecosystem within today's rapidly evolving media environment. His leadership experience as Director General of RTÉ will be invaluable as the EBU moves towards the next chapter in its history. I am confident he will do a very good job for the EBU, for all our Members, and for public service media."
Noel Curran, who is expected to take up the position at the beginning of September, is the former DG, Managing Director of Television and Editor of Current Affairs of RTÉ, Ireland's national television and radio broadcaster. As Director General, he radically restructured RTÉ following the financial crisis that began at the end of 2008 and successfully positioned RTÉ as a robust digital media organization. A strong and long-time advocate of public service media, Curran is also an award winning investigative journalist and producer.
The EBU has 73 members in 56 countries in Europe and an additional 34 associates in Asia, Africa and North and South America.
