On February 28 the head of “Kentron” TV channel changed again: Petros Ghazarian was replaced on the position of the director by Meruzhan Sargsian. The latter, before the new position, was the director of “Lraber” newscast of the Second Armenian TV Channel.
It should be noted that after “Kentron” changed its owner in April 2004 Meruzhan Sargsian is the third head of the company. Petros Ghazarian held this position for about seven months, and his predecessor Aram Abrahamian – less than three months. Aram Abrahamian explained his resignation by the controversies he had with the TV company owners over the financial management of the channel (see details in YPC Weekly Newsletter, August 26 – September 2, 2004). As Petros Ghazarian told YPC, he resigned the position of the director of his own accord, since he prefers to engage in creative rather than administrative work. Petros Ghazarian will continue to host “Urvagits” program on “Kentron” TV channel and is going to implement a new project, “Compromise” Sunday analytical program.
