The Spanish government has proposed Rosa Maria Mateo as the temporary head of the public broadcaster RTVE.
According to El Economista, she will remain in the role until a new board of directors is elected by competition.
The move follows the failure of Tomas Fernando Flores, a journalist and director of Radio 3, to secure a majority vote in the Congress of Deputies making him the head of RTVE.
Mateo, also a journalist, has spent most her career, which spans several decades, at RTVE.
She worked on La2 when it was a UHF channel, and also at one stage presented the news on the private station Antena 3.
