It is estimated that on Monday 22nd the state channel will change its name and logo. Although the channel is still expecting something, the details are currently being kept under wraps. It was only known that the word “public” will be removed from the name, and the term “Argentina” could be added, which had already been used in previous governments and administrations, along with a slogan that would be a nod to President Javier Milei.

Let us remember that Channel 7, from 1979 to 2000, was called Argentina Televisora ​​Color (ATC), and from 2000 to 2006, Canal Siete Argentina. It was then renamed Televisión Pública and in 2016 Televisión Pública Argentina. In 2019, it was called TV Pública again, which is why in certain sectors it is understood that the term “public” refers directly to the governments of Néstor Kirchner, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Alberto Fernández, a reference that the current national administration wants to leave aside.

According to what he was able to find out THE NATION, The channel’s graphics and new logo are the responsibility of the creative department and the digital media department of the public channel; as it was not commissioned to a third party or a company external to RTA, this change would have zero cost for the management. In this way, the line that everything that is being done in terms of the public channel does not spend state money is followed, which is González’s main objective.

The programs that will be launched during this month (this week the sports news program debuted) mixed zone, from 18 to 19, with Luli Fernández and Miguel Osovi) are the beginning of a grid that will be completed in August. These additions are made with the money generated by the commercial department from the sale of advertising in the programs; the idea is that each cycle that goes on air seeks external funding, from private companies, to cover production and artistic expenses, even some hosts or artists are already joining with their own advertisers.
