RTÉ to make job cuts
June 21, 2011
Ireland’s state broadcaster, RTÉ, has announced a redundancy scheme in order to cut a minimum of 70 jobs and save €5 million a year.
RTÉ, which is funded partly by licence fee and partly by advertising, said the job cuts were essential in light of a €30 million deficit facing the station this year.
The redundancies will bring the number of RTÉ staff down to less than 2,000.
