The incoming director general of BNT actually stated within his audition the following positive statement about the Eurovision projects:

Eurovision became an emblematic show for BNT and brought positives in its placement as a public media.

Bulgarian language fansite Eurovision-Bulgaria.com, who run OGAE Bulgaria, translated the above quote while also stating: “will the emblematic show for the Bulgarian National Television be dropped just like that?”
