The newly-appointed NTV top executives are now supposed to restore this television channel's traditional professionalism, for the most part, NTV editor-in-chief Vladimir Kulistikov said here today. A more utilitarian approach implies that we must correctly pose specific tasks, Kulistikov told Mayak (Beacon) radio station. Kulistikov regretted the decision of some NTV journalists to quit, voicing his gratitude to well-known TV journalists Tatiana Mitkova, Leonid Parfenov, Alexei Pivovarov and many others, who had been the pride of NTV, and who continue work for the company at this stage. Kulistikov also suggested that Parfenov host the rather popular "Hero of the Day" program. According to Kulistikov, NTV will receive new hosts and some young correspondents already in the near future.
