South Korea's largest public broadcaster KBS said Wednesday that it nominated Cho Dae-hyun, the former chief of the company's contents distributing unit, as its new president.

The decision by the KBS board of directors needs to be approved by President Park Geun-hye. South Korea's broadcasting law stipulates the president's right to appoint the chief of KBS.

Cho, if appointed, will lead the broadcaster until November next year, succeeding Gil Hwan-young, who was dismissed last month by the board for his alleged meddling in news reporting in favor of the government with about half of his three-year tenure left.

Cho joined KBS in 1978 as a producer and held various positions, including KBS vice president, before becoming president of KBSMedia.

He was recognized for his ability to manage the company in a stable way based on his 30 years of work experience with the broadcaster and recent service as its vice president, according to sources close to the board. (Yonhap)
