Macron’s new minister of culture wants a French BBCmain
Françoise Nyssen resigned this week, dogged by tax accusations at her family-owned publishing house. It’s a shame. She invested heavily in music education.
Her successor Franck Riester has gone on record saying he wants to merge France Télévisions, Radio France and France Media Monde into a ‘BBC à la française.’
Immediately at risk are the radio orchestras. We hear nothing but alarm and despondency.
