Recently, Adelin Petrisor, a well known Romanian journalist, published exclusively on his blog, the information according to which Intact terminated a consultancy contract it had with British ITN. According to the blog, Intact’s management decided to terminate the contract after a year of spending serious cash without improvements, but quite the opposite, as the company saw its main news bulletin seriously loosing ground in front of the main competitor, Știrile Pro TV.
