Tongan boss to head Fiji TV channel

Fiji’s Mai Television has appointed Marc Santos, Tonga’s current head of Digicel-owned DIGITV, as general manager of the free-to-air and privately- owned broadcasting service.

The company says "Santos has considerable experience in content acquisition, planning and senior management with Digicel Tonga with some of his larger acquisitions being SANZAR Rugby rights for Tonga."

“I’m thrilled to be taking on this challenge. I understand the pressures Mai TV is under and I’m confident I can assist the group with its growth in Fiji and other parts of the region," Santos said.

Santos is reportedly Tongan and he would take over the position shortly this month from the founder of Mai Television, Mr Broadbridge. Mr Broadbridge  under the trading name of Click Pacific Limited, will lead the establishment of a new business in Papua New Guinea focussing on television production and its digital signage arm Click.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.
