Jan Bors, Head of Delegation for the Czech Republic at Eurovision Song Contest is leaving his position!
He will be leaving national broadcaster Česká televize, which means he will also step down as the Head of Delegation for his country, which he has been since 2015.
In a lengthy post on his social media accounts, Jan fondly looks back on all the years spent at national broadcaster Česká televize, where he says he has grown both professionally and as a person, ending up doing the enormous project that is the Eurovision Song Contest.
On how the Eurovision Song Contest has touched him, he states:
I have been given the opportunity to learn constantly and this desire to absorb new things, improve and apply modern approaches has not left me yet.
I was given the opportunity to learn from the best European artists in the world and see the passion, the desire to do things even better. Not to be afraid to use new things and methods. Just go ahead.

The announcements comes just two days after the official Eurovision Twitter account celebrates the 3 most succesful Czech entries this decade, in honour of the Czech Republic’s Independence Day:
And that’s a road the country will continue on, promises Bors!
Four days ago, he shared a long interview in which he promised us 8 incredible songs in next year’s Czech national, songs that, he’s convinced, will make many other countries jealous!
Jan has shared the interview, in Czech, right here:
In 2016, the Czech Republic achieved their highest success at Eurovision thus far when Mikolas Josef brought his ‘Lie to Me’ all the way to a 6th place!
On Saturday the 25th of January 2020 we will see what Jan Bors and his team have prepared for us during the live televised final on CT1!
All the best, Jan, and good luck on your future projects!
