Possible new vote to cut SRG funding
Although the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG) survived the no-Billag vote over the weekend. Many commentators say the corporation is still under threat.
The initiators of the first vote now suggest a follow up to cut the fee to CHF 200 a year. Such a move would lead to a slimmed down national broadcaster – with the closure of many TV and radio channels.
A former editor for Swiss TV, Diego Yenez, told the 20 minutes paper, a CHF 200 choice would be much more dangerous for the corporation.
