The Italian Senate has approved the government’s RAI public broadcaster reform bill, which calls for wider powers for RAI’s CEO, a slimmer board of directors and extends RAI employee contracts to five years. The reform bill also calls for transparency: the CEO must not have any conflicts of interest, and is obligated to make executive salaries public. As per the bill, the CEO can be appointed for a period of three years, based on shareholder recommendations. The board also has the power to remove the CEO.
