Nicholas Porro stay in Mediaset. This is what the journalist himself announced on Twitter: “So far Piersilvio, the Cav and their managers have made me feel at home. For the next few years Mediaset will remain my family. #quartarepubblica #mediaset #zuppadiporro». The presenter of Quarta Repubblica on Rete4 and deputy director of the newspaper thus clarifies the field of hypotheses about his possible move to Rai.
The new Rai programs
Meanwhile, time is running out for the preparation of the timetables for the next autumn-winter which will be presented in Naples on July 7. Managing director Roberto Sergio convened, for the first time in seven years, the editorial committee to take stock of the situation and speed up the fine-tuning of the broadcast grid. This, the need to hurry, was one of the recommendations that emerged during the meeting, which was attended by CEO and general manager Giampaolo Rossi, as well as the directors of genre, distribution and marketing. A first recognition of the initiatives underway by the new team, which for the most part has just taken office, with a declared objective: adding new programs and not subtracting anything from what already exists at Rai. Therefore, enriching the history of the public service, in the different sectors: from entertainment to fiction, from in-depth analysis to the multimedia offer. We did not go into the details of the different schedules. Next week, senior management will meet with individual gender directors to define programs and budgets in detail. It is clear, however, that everyone is already at work.

Who enters and who leaves
Among the urgencies is filling the void left by Fabio Fazio, who announced his move to Discovery, and by Lucia Annunziata, who resigned in opposition to the government elections. The hypothesis of an arrival of Massimo Giletti, after his departure from La7, does not seem concrete at the moment. For Rai3’s Sunday evening, the transfer of Report from Monday remains in play, with a longer duration than the current one, as well as a space for Alessandro Cattelan, who is certainly not new to Rai. Monica Maggioni is one of the ideas on the lawn of the Sunday afternoons of the third network, in the strip previously occupied by Annunziata, but the most natural location for a program led by the new director of the Informative Offer could be the second Monday of Rai1. evening.
Among the possible arrivals is that of Myrta Merlino, who enjoys esteem both in the majority and in the opposition, and could star in a talk on the track of L’aria che tira. Massimo Gramellini’s situation is still to be defined, his contract is about to expire and next week he will meet with the new managers to assess the proposals. The journalist does not run away from public television, even if there are rumors about his move to La7. A hypothesis that could be made if the relationship with Rai was interrupted. Pd and M5, for their part, have asked the control commission to summon the director of Rainews Paolo Petrecca to a hearing, protesting the option to broadcast live the center-right rally last Friday in support of the candidate for the mayor of Catania. The request was accepted by the president Barbara Floridia, within a cycle of hearings of the directors of gender and head of public television, from those confirmed. Petrecca will be the first to be heard after June 8, when the hearing of the president of Rai, Marinella Soldi, and Sergio is scheduled.
