The Chair of the Broadcasting Council, Friederike von Kirchbach, resigned in August amid allegations of nepotism against the head of the ARD broadcaster, Patricia Schlesinger, who had been fired without notice, and the chief controller, Wolf-Dieter Wolf. Since then, the supervisory body has been headed by her deputy, Dieter Pienkny. The current term of office of the Council lasts until next February.
