Czech TV management is reported to have fired the head of the station’s New Media department Pavlína Kvapilová. Kvapilová, who has held the post since the section was established in October of 2011, recently stood up for colleague Daniela Drtinová who was abruptly taken off a high-profile Czech TV currents affairs programme. There has been speculation that Drtinová was replaced under political pressure due to her tough interviewing style. Kvapilová has refused to comment on the development.
