Rai is a leader in ratings. In Vigilance, the number one of viale Mazzini, Carlo Fuortes lists the data: “The Rai group, even in this first part of the year, confirms its leadership in the television market: from 1 January to 12 June 2022 it obtained an average of 37 , 4% share in prime time and 35.8% throughout the day ». Then he adds, going into detail, that «the three generalist networks achieved a total, in prime time, a 32.2% share with an increase of 1 percentage point compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. The share for the whole day is also growing, reaching 29.9% share, with an increase of 0.4 percentage points ». In short, according to the CEO, the company holds, at least, on the numbers in comparison with other competitors. Then the nominations theme. Or rather the tensions with the former RAI general manager, Mario Orfeo. «Last June 1st I communicated to Mario Orfeo the lack of the necessary conditions for a fruitful collaboration for the direction of study. In recent months I have registered a series of critical issues, these ultimately resulted in the failure to send the documentation essential for programming. The lack of the documentation in question – explained Fuortes – caused the cancellation of the presentation of the entire autumn / winter 2022-2023 schedule to the Board, scheduled for last June 1, as due. All the other gender directors had regularly sent the necessary documentation. Subsequently – added the CEO – and considering Orfeo’s professional value, I proposed that he take over the direction of Tg3, a proposal that had the positive opinion of a large majority of the Board of Directors ».
