He led Switzerland’s resurgence at Eurovision, helping push Luca Hänni to fourth place in 2019 and Gjon’s Tears to third place (and with a jury win) in 2021. 

And now former Head of Delegation Reto Peritz will co-executive produce Eurovision 2025 in Switzerland.

Reto is currently the director of entertainment at SRF, Switzerland’s German-language broadcaster. On top of serving as HoD for several years, he was also an elected member of the ESC Reference Group from 2019 to 2021.

He’ll serve as executive producer alongside Moritz Stadler, who runs operations at RTS, Switzerland’s French-language broadcaster. 

Reto Peritz and Moritz Stadler named executive producers of Eurovision 2025 in Switzerland

“I am honored to serve as the Executive Producer for the Eurovision Song Contest 2025 alongside Moritz Stadler,” Reto wrote on Instagram.

“This event marks the contest’s return to its birthplace, where it all began in 1956. In these turbulent times, it offers a unique opportunity to reflect on the values and fundamental reasons behind the #ESC right at its origin.”

“Together with an exceptional team, we aim to create an event that not only showcases the diversity and beauty of Switzerland to the world but also resonates deeply with the Swiss community.”

After thanking a series of colleagues and bosses he added: “We look forward to tackling the challenges ahead and making #Eurovision 2025 a memorable celebration.”

I had to go and check because I thought that Gjon Tears was 3rd and not 2nd (being Barbara Pravi one of my favourite runner-ups ever):

Norway, Netherlands, hopefully Spain will make up their mind and withdraw too

one more big 5 withdrawal, maybe France

that will hit the EBU so hard, especially withdrawing big 5 nations since they pay the most

How does it work in Switzerland with broadcasters? Is it like in Belgium where 2 broadcasters are changing every year or is it just one for whole Switzerland?

Get rid of the stupid “producer’s choice” spots. That’s only in place for corrupt purposes.

I wonder if “Producer’s Choice” had anything to do with Sweden being drawn in spot # 1. And whether we can start voting right away in final. Or was that yet another one-off…..

They definatly look like they will carry out everything profesionally.

Switzerland is known to be very conscientious with products and processes and to deliver high quality.

I am quite sure that it could be one of the greatest eurovisions ever.

Except for food. Nestlé produces food in the bad way possible. With palm or canola oil. Glucose syrup. And everything else which is bad for the health.
