Journalists’ association Impressum elects two women to the top

Fabienne Sennhauser and Caroline Gebhard are the new heads of Impressum. The delegates' meeting of the professional association of journalists in Switzerland elected the deputy editor-in-chief of the "Zürichsee-Zeitung" and the journalist from "La Côte" as successors to Edgar Bloch, who is leaving the board.

In just over a decade, Switzerland has lost a third of its media professionals, and Impressum has lost numerous members in proportion to this, according to a press release issued by the professional association on Friday. This is also reflected in Impressum's finances.

The delegates adopted a resolution in support of the parliamentary initiative by Isabelle Chassot, a member of the Council of States from Fribourg. The support for the electronic media - including news agencies such as Keystone-SDA - demanded by the initiative must come quickly in order to avoid further crises such as the one the media sector is currently experiencing, according to Impressum.
