Aigelsreiter has taken over the sport, Ziegler has expanded accessibility and inclusion in the ORF, and Schrom is leading the “Smart Production” project.
The ORF has found a new president for the financially important and popular sports sector. Hannes Eggelsreiter took over on March 1 from Hans-Peter Troost, who retired from that position after many years. Aigelsreiter previously worked as editor-in-chief for ORF Radio. Following the departure of ORF-TV-News editor-in-chief Matthias Schrum last year, two of the three editor-in-chief positions in ORF’s multimedia newsroom should be filled.
Schrum, who was doomed because of talks with former FPÖ party leader Heinz-Christian Strache, will in the future lead the “Smart Production” project with Stefan Kollinger, it was announced in Tuesday’s broadcast. Evaluates modern, low-cost production methods for current and future multimedia software initiatives.
Everything is new
Former ORF-Lower Austria Regional Director Robert Ziegler has also secured a new position at the Public Service Media Carrier. The man faced serious allegations of influencing the ÖVP since he was Editor-in-Chief moving to the “Facility Management and Corporate Social Responsibility” department, where he will carry out the further expansion of accessibility and inclusion in the ORF.
New sports director Eggelsreiter was born on April 16, 1964 in Lilienfeld in Lower Austria and has been working with ORF since 1989. There he began his career as a reporter and editor at the state studio in Lower Austria. In the mid-1990s he switched to Hello Austria as a TV reporter and in 1997 he joined the radio’s local politics department. In 2002 he was promoted to head of the local politics department at Al-Ilam radio station. In 2011 he was in charge of radio magazines as head of information Ö1 before being appointed chief radio editor at ORF in 2012. The appointment of Eggelsreiter at that time was also seen as a bourgeois demand for re-election of former ORF general manager Alexander Wrabitz. As head of sports, the 58-year-old was entrusted with creating a major multimedia department (TV, radio, Internet).
