Bartosz Hojka elected for another term to the Supervisory Board of the world's largest media association

Bartosz Hojka elected for another term to the Supervisory Board of the world's largest media association

The World Association of News Publishers (WAN-IFRA), the world's largest media organization, has elected its authorities for the next few years. Bartosz Hojka, CEO of Agora, has joined the association's Supervisory Board for another term. The 74th WAN-IFRA World News Media Congress 2023 is currently underway in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, and has already passed 5 important resolutions on press freedom, including calling for the release of imprisoned female journalists, and for the global community to show more solidarity with Ukraine


On June 29, 2023, at the WAN-IFRA General Assembly, new authorities of the organization were elected. The position of WAN-IFRA president was reappointed to Fernando de Yarza, head of the Spanish media group Henneo. In addition, 11 new people, including eight women, have joined the association's Supervisory Board. 33 existing members of the Council will serve on it for another term - including Bartosz Hojka, Agora's CEO. As the only representative from Poland for the next 2 years, he will support the organization in implementing its currently most important projects for press freedom and journalistic independence, sustainable media development and the introduction of further innovations in the media industry.

Previously, Bartosz Hojka was elected by the General Assembly to the WAN-IFRA Supervisory Board in December 2021.

Bartosz Hojka has been Agora's CEO since March 2014. He currently oversees the Radio segment, the division, corporate sales and the HR, PR and internal audit departments. He is a member of the supervisory boards of Helios S.A., AMS S.A., Yieldbird Sp. z o.o. and Goldenline Sp. z o.o.. He is a member of the General Council of the Lewiatan Confederation, the most influential Polish business organization representing the interests of employers in Poland and the European Union - he is a representative of the Union of Private Media Employers there.

The election of new WAN-IFRA board members took place at the annual World News Media Congress - World News Media Congress 2023 in Taipei.

- Nearly a thousand executives, editors and journalists are meeting in the Taiwanese capital to demonstrate their appreciation and support for media independence and democratic standards in the country, which is struggling with political pressure from China. But most of our meetings and discussions are about universal challenges for our industry: artificial intelligence, the media's relationship with and regulation of global technology giants, and the digital transformation of traditional publishers and broadcasters. We also passed a number of resolutions on media freedom, including in Ukraine, among others," says Bartosz Hojka, CEO of Agora.

The agenda of the WAN-IFRA Council included the most relevant topics, concerning free press around the world. As a result, the organization has already passed 5 resolutions:

  • It called for the immediate release of WAN-IFRA 2023 Golden Freedom Pen winners Elahe Mohammadi and Niloofar Hamedi and all imprisoned journalists in Iran, and condemned the brutal repression of the press and all human rights protesters. (link)

  • The Council also condemned the six-year prison sentence handed down to veteran journalist Jose Rubén Zamora in Guatemala and called on the authorities to stop harassing him and the independent news organization he heads, El Periódico. (link)

  • The Council reiterated its solidarity with the free press in Ukraine, calling for renewed international solidarity and increased support for colleagues fighting for the liberation of their country. (link)

  • The Council called on governments around the world to prioritize the safety of journalists and make it easier for independent media to play their role, especially during critical periods such as elections, by strengthening the enabling environment in which the profession operates. (link)

  • The Council also called on European Union member states to adhere to commitments agreed to by EU finance ministers in 2021 on the VAT rate for news media, a key element in rebuilding independent media across the continent after the pandemic. (link)
