Bavarian Regulatory Authority for Commercial Broadcasting

Homage to the father of private broadcasting

Change at the top of the Bavarian Regulatory Authority for Commercial Broadcasting (BLM)

As part of a celebratory event, a farewell was said to the former President Prof. Dr. Wolf-Dieter Ring and Siegfried Schneider was welcomed as the new president.

High-class and leading representatives from media politics, media supervision, media industry, science and journalism were amongst the around 400 guests invited. The presenter Viola Weiß (Radio Gong) presented the evening with plenty of humour and charm was able to welcome Minister President Horst Seehofer, who called the president the “father of private broadcasting”, to the stage.

The president's period of office ended after 25 successful years with a film tribute from the ProSiebenSat1 group and BLM to Prof. Dr. Ring and a high spirited get-together.
