In his appearance on ‘The Interview with Fabian Demicoli’, Micallef stated that one of the main problems with the Public Broadcasting Service was treated as if it was a private broadcaster, as opposed to a national broadcaster which reflects a society and its culture.

He went on to highlight that a national broadcaster should have its financial books in order as well as programmes of high quality, not the teleshopping and other programmes of this sort. The VCA Chairman also called for a reform in the media and broadcasting sector, shining a light on the fact that certain problems exist as a result of society’s development and if local broadcasters do not adapt, they will die.
