RAI’s Paolo Morawski is the new president of CIRCOM Regional, succeeding Lefty Kongalides who was in the same position from 2001-2003.
With an unanimous vote of the European Board Morawski accepted the honor of leading Europe’s only regional television association.
Morawski was instrumental in the success of the annual CR conference in Grado, Italy.
In a short speech Paolo thanked everyone and underlined that he will “listen, listen, listen” to what the members suggest and ask and he will do his best to carry on.

Kongalides, whose tenure as president ends December 31, added that the CIRCOM Regional years were the best of his career.
Full of praise for the outgoing president were also CR General Secretary Marija Nemcic and European Board member Jean-Marie Belin.
