Great news from RTE. The Director of RTE has said that the earnings of top 'talent' in RTE will be cut by 30% in the next two years. He feels that this may result in the loss of some of said 'talent' to competitor but in a rare moment of common sense pointed out they would be replaced.
Pesonaly I'm delighted. RTE is a money hole when it comes to paying it's 'talent'. Who cares if numpties like Kenny or Turbidy go to TV3. It will be yet another reason not to watch TV3 and RTE will start looking for fresh talent, that's talent without the inverted commas.
This is a step in the right direction.
The director general of RTÉ has conceded that the company could lose some of its top names to competitors as a result of pay cuts.
