KirchMedia taps joint deputy-chairmen

Mojto, Kogel replace Hahn

BERLIN — Jan Mojto, the Kirch Group’s managing director for programming, and Fred Kogel, former managing director of commercial web Sat.1, have been named joint deputy-chairmen of the management board of the group’s main holding, KirchMedia.

Mojto will continue to oversee programming for the entire Kirch Group in his new function. Kogel will take charge of programming for Kirch’s newly formed ProSiebenSat.1 Media, which controls webs ProSieben, Sat.1, Kabel 1 and N24.

Kogel will also head up licensing and oversee the planned expansion of show production. Management restructure takes effect in January.

Kogel and Mojto replace Dieter Hahn, who remains deputy chairman of the whole Kirch Group and in charge of multimedia, pay TV, communications and sports.

“During the years of working jointly for Sat.1, I came to think highly of Fred Kogel. His personal and professional qualities are a real gain for the Kirch Group,” Mojto said.

KirchMedia contains Kirch’s free TV, production, licensing and technological assets.
