The Government have said this week that they are closely monitoring the financial position of RTÉ. The public service broadcaster might have made nice money with last nights toy show, but their generally really struggling to stay afloat.

Questions were also asked around the pay of RTE’s Irish Language staff with it being confirmed that a review of pay grades is underway. There’s a lot of back and fourth here so I’d recommend reading the article attached below as that gives good detail on everything that was said.

Finally this week, student radio station Juice FM Cork celebrated its 7th birthday on air. The station serves as a training ground for the broadcasters of tomorrow who present shows on the station as part of CSN College’s Radio Broadcasting course’s.

I myself started radio Land while doing the CSN course and I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience. if your looking to start a career in the radio industry there really is no better way to do it.
