Major Shake-up at ATV

September 26th, 2017

The management of Azad Azerbaycan (Free Azerbaijan) Independent TV and Radio Company (ATV) has been completely changed. Namely, ATV President Vugar Garadagli, Vice-President Rauf Dadashov and PR department head Turan Ibrahimov have been ousted.

The change in the ATV management has allegedly occurred due to Turan Ibrahimov after he criticised Baku Mayor Hajibala Abutalibov on ATV Sahar (ATV Morning), a programme hosted by Ibrahimov that has been once again taken off air.

From now on, ATV will be headed by Director General of CBC television channel Azer Khalilov, who has personally confirmed this news.
