Interview: Bettermann reflects on DW’s history and priorities

In an interview with the Times of India, Erik Bettermann, Director General of Deutsche Welle, highlights the work that we do and how the media business has changed over the last 60 years. In the interview, Bettermann is quoted as saying: “Citizen journalists have an increasingly important influence on the world. But the variety of sources on the Internet also means that it’s sometimes hard to know what information to trust. So, it’s increasingly important to have public service broadcasters for the sake of reliable information and quality journalism.”

Bettermann’s term as Director General ends at the end of September. The new Director General, Peter Limbourg, will be taking his place in office as of October 1.
