Edgar Böhm, Conchita Wurst, Stefan Zechner
Two weks after Conchita Wurst helped Austria to rise like a Phoenix from their Eurovision not so glorious past ORF has already appointed most key names in the Core Team, who will be responsable for the next year's jubilee edition of the Eurovision song contest. 
Edgar Böhm, Head of Entertainment at ORF, will be the Executive Producer of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, thus leading the project at ORF and representing the host broadcaster at the EBU.
Stefan Zechner will be the Producer of the TV Show.
Martin Szerencsi has been appointed to be Legal Advisor.
Stefan Wöber will be line producer.
Claudio Bortoli, who has had the same function already for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, will again be the technical manager.
Roman Horacek will be the Head of Press of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
The event manager, to be responsible of logistics, hospitality, and security among others, is yet to be appointed.
ORF has promised to decide on the venue and host city by the end of July. So far Vienna is considered the obvious choice and has several more or less suiable venues. Also Graz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Linz, Oberwart and Vorarlberg have applied but most of them only for the fun of it as they surely don't meet EBU's needs. Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna seems the most obvious venue for 2015.
