During their absence, Sandro Brotz, moderator and deputy editor-in-chief, will head the “Arena” editorial team and will be responsible for the political talk.

«So far, I have had the opportunity to help shape domestic reporting at SRF behind the scenes. I have always tried to prepare even highly complex topics in such a way that they can be grasped by a wide audience. I will continue to pursue this claim as a moderator at ’10vor10′ », Franziska Egli is quoted in the message. The challenge that awaits her would be with a great deal of respect and even more anticipation.
