Christophe Rasch

CEO MediaGo SA & GoStudios SA

A journalist by training, with a degree in Broadcast Media from UC Los Angeles (UCLA) and in media management from the Scandinavian International Management Institute (SIMI) and IMD, Christophe worked for many years for Swiss Radio and Television (RTS), where he was a morning news anchor, 7:30 p.m. news anchor, producer, and US correspondent. He is the only Swiss journalist to have interviewed Steve Jobs while covering the Silicon Valley explosion in California in the 1990s.

In 1999, back in Switzerland, he created the digital division of French-speaking Swiss television before launching the channel's first website on 1 December 2000.

Attracted by the private sector and media management, Christophe was then in charge of the "Business Development" division for the Edipresse media group, before designing, founding, and managing "La Télé," a regional television channel covering news in the cantons of Vaud and Fribourg. In 2018, Christophe launched the track "CNN Money Switzerland" in Zurich with the TURNER Group. A unique entrepreneurial experience, which took him from Atlanta to Dhaka and from London to Dubai. The technical, commercial, and financial synergies implemented for this project, which ended in August 2020 due to the pandemic, have been fully reintegrated into MediaGo.

Christophe Rasch was Vice President of the Federal Media Commission when it was created by Doris Leuthard and Vice President of Telesuisse, the umbrella organization of private television channels in Switzerland.  His struggles have resulted in private broadcasters receiving a larger share of the radio and television license fee.
