Christoph Lanz
Director of Television at DW-TV

Christoph Lanz is Director of Deutsche Welle and is thus in charge of Germany’s international television broadcaster.
He started his journalistic career as a reporter and editor for ARD, working for SWF, among other things. He then worked for various television and radio stations, including as a correspondent in New York, deputy head of programming at RIAS 2 and deputy programme director at FFH, one of the largest commercial radio stations in Germany.
In 1990, Christoph Lanz moved to RIAS TV in Berlin, where, two years later, at the age of 31, he became Germany’s youngest editor-in-chief in the television branch. After the political upheaval in Germany and the ensuing disbandment of RIAS TV, Deutsche Welle took over the studios and facilities of RIAS-TV in Berlin and launched DW-TV.
As editor-in-chief, Christoph Lanz played a formative role during the early years of the international broadcaster and headed the re-launch of DW-TV in 1998. Since then, the station has established itself as a news, information and culture channel. Christoph Lanz was appointed Director of Television at Deutsche Welle in 2002.
