The move follows concern over the lack of the broadcaster's ability to reach the outer islands.

The new board is led by a foreign ministry official, Johnety Jerety, and also includes journalists.

Last year, the VBTC signed an agreement with a Chinese telecommunications company to upgrade its current system to introduce digital television and radio.
