The acting president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, has indicated this Wednesday that its Executive has approved a contract-program with Radio Televisión Madrid (RTVM) with which it guarantees “the viability and sustainability of the chain“.
This has been announced by the president herself, in statements to the media, in the Madrid Assembly to which she has gone to collect her act as a deputy of the XII Legislature.
This contract-program has a duration of three years and maintains the same amount as the previous years, higher than 74 million for 2021. “The viability and sustainability of the chain are assured. That’s the important thing“, has declared.
However, Ayuso has warned that “from now on they will see if a modification of the current regulations is negotiated or not“To do this, they have to” take office as deputies and let the legislature begin. “
For his part, through a statement, the general director of RTVM, Jose Pablo Lopez, has emphasized that this contract-program “opens a horizon of stability in which pending challenges can be addressed“and has valued that an agreement has been reached” for which many people have worked in the last months of negotiations. “
This agreement includes, among other clauses, the condition that no production company can assume 16% of the broadcast hours of their channels every year.
The approval of the financing for Telemadrid represents a truce in the war that both have been waging for months. The next battle will be the possible modification of the law of Radio Televisión Madrid to designate a new address in Telemadrid that the Ayuso Government would be preparing.
