Senior journalist Reno Bugeja is expected to replace Natalino Fenech as head of news at PBS, MaltaToday has learnt.

Bugeja is a veteran news reporter at PBS. His discussion programme Dissett has established itself as one of the more and relevant discussion programmes at PBS.

Fenech, appointed head of news in 2008, is a former Independent and The Times' journalist. He was repeatedly accused by the Labour in opposition of acting as a gatekeeper to the PN administration in his role as head of news.



On one occasion, whilst giving evidence in court in a libel case instituted by Fenech against MaltaToday, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had said that he had given Natalino Fenech the 'benefit of the doubt'. He later changed that opinion after witnessing to what extent PBS news had degenerated.

It is not known what Fenech, a former senior journalist at The Times, will be doing after leaves his post.

Natalino Fenech should go to work at dar Centrali as a volunteer since they run out of money

Excellent Choice. Ruth Amaira needs to be promoted too. Let us all hope that PBS will become the national station that it should be.

His integrity in impartiality has been demonstrated over and over again. One hopes he keeps it up, and i believe he will. He deserves this promotion after years of experience and useful service to PBS.

Prosit. Decizjoni li ghandha tinzel ghasel ma kull min ihobb l-imparzjalita' u l-"fair play" fix-xandir tal-istat. Issa jmiss li jtajjru wkoll lil Anton Attard, is-CEO tal-PBS, ghas-sehem moqziez tieghu kemm ilu f'din il-kariga.

Anzi stenna wisq il gvern biex ibiddlu. Issa jmiss lil siehbu u lil dawk il fanatici nazzjonalisti li bil wicc tost kollu kienu jilaqu lil PN u jwarrbu lil PL. Il PBS ghandu jkollu gurnalisti tip Saviour Balzan imexxuh.

A wise move as he is liked by all for his unbiased comments and programmes. I believe he deserves it but perhaps it would be better if a call for applications is issued in line with the PL promise of meritocracy!!!! Then the best person for the job can be appointed rather than being hand picked by the Minister.

Biased as usual. What you forgot to tell us is that Reno a well known labourist and his program Dissett was insisted upon by labour members of the B A as a balance to Bondi PLUs

Don`t let the door hit you on the way out Mr. fenech. Good riddance.

Thank God common sense has prevailed and someone who is really impartial and independent is expected to be placed head of news at PBS. Please note how unlike the previous government the present government is not placing some journalist from his own party media to head the PBS newsroom. Are you taking note Simon Busutill (soon to be leader of the opposition!) ?.

Prosit and Good Luck Reno. For me you deserve the post, as you show what balance means when presenting your programmes and asking questions. I think you will continue this in your new role.
