Prima TV has appointed Tomáš Vojáček as the new editor-in-chief of the news and current affairs division of CNN Prima News. Prior to this appointment, Vojáček served as the executive producer.
His deputies will be Roman Pistorius and Lukáš Seidl.
Tomáš Vojáček has a rich professional history, including four years as head of the weekly current affairs programme on Nova TV, where he began his career as a reporter. Later, as the executive producer, he played a key role in the launch of CNN Prima News.

He is the author of broadcast concepts for parliamentary, local and presidential elections, as well as numerous foreign projects such as the coronation of King Charles III.
"We are currently working closely with colleagues from CNN on a new visual design for our studio to offer our viewers even more attractive news that not only reports on current events, but also clearly and comprehensively explains why they are happening and how they will affect their lives," says Tomáš Vojáček.
The new deputy editor-in-chief, Roman Pistorius, has held various editorial and presenting positions at Czech Television, Nova TV and the Mafra media group. He is currently producer of the main evening news at CNN Prima News.
