As KBS completed its digital switchover, President & CEO Gil Hwan-young has assembled the executive staff to lead KBS into 2013 and beyond.
Mr Gil was appointed to the top KBS post in November 2012, when the former KBS President & CEO completed his three-year term. The new executive arrangement took shape at the close of last year.
The executive team now consists of four new Executive Managing Directors: Mr Moun Chang-Suk, Audience Relations; Mr Jang Seon-Hwang, Content; Mr Lee Jong-Ok, New Media & Technology; and Ms Ryu Hyun-Soon, Policy Planning. Mr Lee Hwa-Seob will retain his role of Executive Managing Director of News & Sports.
During an interview with the new KBS leaders, Mr. Moun Chang-suk said that KBS needs to reinforce its public services for the audience in the face of strong competitions in the changing media environment. Mr. Lee Jong-ok, agreeing with Mr. Moun on the change of media landscape, reaffirmed his efforts to make headways in the areas of new media through the development of new digital services such as N-Screen and OHTV. Meanwhile, Mr. Jang Seong-hwan and Ms. Ryu Hyun-soon both emphasized the importance of quality content.
