The Italian public broadcaster RAI has confirmed Luca Milano as Head of the Kids Division of Rai Ragazzi, in a board meeting that caused a major re-shuffle involving all the main TV channels, with new directors named for Rai1, Rai2 and Rai3 as well as for other key departments.

Under the new industrial plan approved by RAI’s board, all the company will be organised by genres (kids being one of those) and no more by television channels.

The activity of the renewed kids division, headed by Luca Milano, will be creating kids content for all RAI’s offer, not only for the two TV channels Rai Yoyo (preschool) and Rai Gulp (kids), but also for the free VOD service RAI Play and eventually for children’s programmes in generalist TV channels.

Luca Milano is Executive Director of Rai Ragazzi since June 2017, and Chairperson of the Kids Media group of EBU, the association of European public broadcasters.
