“Between 7am-7pm the average age of presenters is 55 (RTÉ) and 54 (Newstalk)…Furthermore, Claire Byrne is the only presenter on RTÉ One, under the age of 40 and Chris O’Donoghue is the only presenter on Newstalk, under the age of 30. He’s 29.”

 

In her second dispatch, Canadian-born, Dublin-based vlogger Katie ‘The Unemployed Graduate’ Varvos outlines how so few women, minorities and young people are on Irish radio and telly.

Fairly staggering, in fairness.

Damn white old guys.
