Reform of ARD/ZDF: Ask the employees! Plea by Björn Staschen – Media

Buhrow, Brosda – isn’t there anyone missing? Ask the employees how ARD and ZDF can change. A few suggestions from the engine room.

How can you forget tens of thousands of people? How can you have a debate about the future of public service broadcasting without asking the staff? Many people work for ARD, ZDF and Deutschlandradio – as well as for newspapers and magazines, private radio stations or TV stations, either as permanent employees or as freelancers. They carry the public service broadcasting, are committed to documentaries, personnel development and transmission masts. And they even throw themselves into the breach at parties for the solidarity-financed radio – in conversations that are rarely conducive to the party mood. But it’s getting harder and harder to stand up for our system over beer.
