The television broadcaster RTL is energetically pushing ahead with the expansion of its paid streaming service RTL. The latest coup, pardon me, the latest personal information is: Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (CSU).

The former Federal Minister of Defense will work on “high-end documentaries” at the private broadcaster, as the media company announced on Monday in Cologne.

Guttenberg will lead through two 90-minute docutainment programs as moderator and interviewer, it said. These should be added to the program this year and will be produced in cooperation with the Leonine daughter i

In 2009 Guttenberg was first Federal Minister of Economics and Technology, then Federal Minister of Defence. The CSU politician climbed high on the popularity scale of the “Bild” newspaper, among others, before he suddenly fell: In the spring of 2011, in the course of a plagiarism scandal surrounding his dissertation, he resigned from all political offices. Guttenberg had copied a lot.

The politician moved to the United States with his family and began working as a consultant. In 2018, zu Guttenberg presented a new doctoral thesis at the University of Southampton in Great Britain, in which he dealt with correspondent banks. He is now Dr. Karl Theodor von Guttenberg. He works, among other things, as a management consultant and lobbyist.
