This afternoon (approx 5pm)
The Joint Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment will hear from RTE Director General Dee Forbes.
Via The Times Ireland Edition:
Dee Forbes will tell TDs on the Oireachtas communications committee this morning that the regime is “broken”, and that licence-fee evasion costs the state broadcaster €40 million a year.
“We would once again put on record our concern that the need for reform is urgent,” Ms Forbes will say. “Without it, there will be far-reaching consequences for our journalism, for national cultural and creative expression, and for employment in the broader media.”
