Public broadcasting board appointed, hiring kicks off today, first programmes to air Feb 1
Content for Thai Public Broadcasting Service (TPBS) will be aired from Feb 1 and the staff recruitment process begins today in a swift move by the committee set up to temporarily oversee the country's first ad-free TV station.
Mr Khwansuang stressed that the new station would adhere strictly to the principles of public television and be independent, balanced, transparent and accountable.
"I hope that it will be an alternative [channel] to strengthen society and will be a key to the bright future of the country," he said.
Their work will be taken over by nine permanent executive board members selected by the Prime Minister's Office within 180 days from the Public Broadcasting Service Act taking effect yesterday.
The law ended the operation of TITV, now renamed TPBS
