TVP: Wołoszański’s program will return after the elections
The TVP press office informed about the reason for removing the programs in a statement sent to the “wirtualnemedia.pl” portal. “The break in the broadcast of programs whose face is Mr. Bogusław Wołoszański is dictated by his political commitment” – explained in the communiqué.
However, the TVP authorities assured that the programs produced for many years will return to the television schedule after October 15. “Exposing his cyclical programs on TVP during the pre-election period would be an additional form of promoting his person, which would be unfair to other candidates. After the elections, the program will return to TVP in HD quality.
