The RTVE Council approves the signing of Broncano

The Board of Directors of RTVE approved this Wednesday, April 10, the signing of the comedian and presenter of The resistance David Broncano with a program for the strip access prime time de TVE’s 1, with four votes in favor, three against and one abstention, as confirmed by sources from the governing body.

The Council has given the green light to the Broncano contract, after last week the interim president of the Corporation, Concepción Cascajosa, removed the debate and vote on this matter from the agenda, considering that it would not obtain the necessary support to obtain the proposal forward.

This Wednesday, the advisor and former president of the Board of Directors of RTVE Elena Sánchez was absent from the meeting again. Sources from the Board of Directors, consulted by Europa Press, have specified that Sánchez was not there and “argues that he is low.” At the meeting, called at 11:15 a.m. by the interim president of the Corporation, Concepción Cascajosa, the directors attended either physically or electronically, as reported by Council sources.

The last few weeks have been marked by the debate generated around the signing of David Broncano with a new program for the access prime time, and the tensions derived from it, which ended with the dismissal of the Content Director José Pablo López and the dismissal of the then president Elena Sánchez in a Board of Directors held on March 26, in the middle of Holy Week.

On March 11, almost a month ago, the RTVE directors already decided to postpone the vote on the hiring of the presenter of ‘La Resistencia’ in an extraordinary Board of Directors, given the doubts about the viability of a contract that involved payment of 42 million euros for three seasons plus VAT (14 million euros per year), from September 2024 to July 2027. The majority of the Board of Directors rejected the contract proposed by the Content Directorate led by José Pablo López.

The resistance is a production by El Terrat (The Mediapro Studio) for Movistar+. From the Príncipe Gran Vía Theater in Madrid, it offers a comedy show with a live audience, and interviews with personalities from different fields. David Broncano co-directs and presents this ‘late night’ from Monday to Thursday, at 11:30 p.m.
