Dutch media authority CvdM is struggling with a very high rates of staff turnover, the NRC Handelsblad reported, after speaking with a large number of (former) employees and other sources in Hilversum.  For example, no successor has yet been found for chairman Madeleine de Cock Buning, who will be leaving after two five-year terms. Commissioner Eric Eljon was suspended by minister Arie Slob, after Eljon came out with a "tell-all"' about the media sector. CvdM general director Suzanne Teijgeler is planning to leave the authority for Discovery Benelux BV from 1 September.
