    Default RTE's new morning show ( 'Morning Edition') starts at 9am today. For the unemployed!

    RTE wakes up nation with new breakfast show Presenter Keelin Shanley on the set of new RTE show 'Morning Edition', which starts today. El Keegan - National News - Independent.ie


    The headline in the Indo is "RTE wakes up nation with new breakfast show", so I thought I better get the tv switched on so I could have a quick look.

    But then as I read the report, I soon found out there would be no need - the show starts at 9am!

    And then to cap it all off:

    Ms Shanley admits she has yet to think about what kind of audience will watch the new programme.


    "I suppose a likely audience are those people at home and the unemployed who would previously have been working.
    The show, which is basically an RTE news show, should start at the latest 8am. 7 or 7.30 would be better.
    They could then repeat it at 9 - 10am for anyone that missed it.

    It has taken RTE nearly 30 years since a morning show was first mooted, so maybe they'll change the start time around 2043.

    I dont think you understand the life of normal stay at home parents , putting on the TV at 9am is not part of the daily routine.

    A slightly disturbing insight into RTE planning though that they'd launch a new show first and only then start thinking about who might watch it.

    Though it explains much RTE programming.
