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:
The show, which is basically an RTE news show, should start at the latest 8am. 7 or 7.30 would be better.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.
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.
