Anna Kowalska posted an entry in which she provided information about the plans to liquidate the facility in the French capital. The journalist, although she will no longer work for TVN24, remains in Paris.
“A chapter is ending. TVN is closing its branch in Paris. Thank you very much for the last five and a half years. It was a time of unforgettable memories. There will be no office in Paris, but I am staying on the Seine and I look forward to new challenges” – wrote Kowalska.
The Moscow office was also closed
In early February, the Discovery Group, the owner of TVN, announced the liquidation of the TVN correspondent office in Moscow. Andrzej Zaucha, the former TV correspondent in Russia, did not want to comment on the matter. In turn, the station itself said that the nature of Zaucha’s work was to change.
“Andrzej Zaucha, in addition to correspondence from Moscow for ‘Fakty’, TVN 24 and TVN 24 BiS, will be responsible for the preparation of materials from Ukraine, Belarus and other countries in the region. His work will require frequent travel, so we gave up maintaining a permanent office in Moscow” – it was reported in the message.
Redundancies at the station
At TVN, employees have been laid off for a long time. The Wirtualne Media service determined that a few days ago the notice was to be given to, inter alia, several sound engineers, operators, researchers, as well as an employee of the graphics department or production manager.
Marcin Barcz, corporate communications director at TVN Grupa Discovery, informed the journalists of Virtual Media that “the main goal is to simplify the company’s structures in such a way as to obtain maximum flexibility and, consequently, the best adjustment to the needs of viewers and market requirements”.
TVN employees were also dissatisfied with the recent internal survey, which included, among others, non-competition issues.
– In a company where most people work on garbage, some people earn half of what the cashier at Biedronka has for a long time, there is actually no incentive system, the employer starts surveillance and limiting the earning possibilities of employees outside the company. I think someone is wrong here – one of the station employees said in an interview with the portal “Virtual Media”.
