After becoming the general director of ORT Channel he started development of the new concept of the 1st Channel: he wanted the channel to get rid of commercials. Obviously, his initiatives didn't suit those who needed ORT Channel for their political aims. As a result, Vladislav Listyev was shot dead at the entrance of his house on March, 1st, 1995. He had been taking the post of the general director of ORT for 34 days only.
