RTÉ have some trailers for Election 2020 in where some of their presenters have a static shot background of Studio 3 behind them.

I get the feeling Studio 3 will be used much more for this election than ever before. They really gave it an overhaul last year and want to get their moneys worth - maybe this will be the first election in which Studio 4 will not be used? I think the first election Studio 4 was used by RTE was 1997 right?

Who will be the main anchor for the RTE election results? We have Huw Edwards for the BBC and Tom Bradby for ITV here - who have RTE got? Will Pat Kenny be the big host for VM coverage?

Bryan Dobson will still be the main presenter I would imagine, with Miriam O’Callaghan and David McCullagh alongside him.

The Leader's Interviews with Bryan Dobson is a live broadcast from Studio 5. The setup they have for it look's great with the Election 2020 graphics used as the backdrop. They are using a huge video wall for the programme.

Studio 5 would be a good choice for RTE if they wished to downsize their election presentation, just like the BBC moved into a smaller studio for the 2019 general election night.

RTÉ’s coverage for the Local and Euro Elections last year was done in Studio 3, and it looked really nice.

I wouldn’t be too shocked if they opted to use Studio 3 for this years election.

Catriona Perry is hosting The Spin Room in Studio 3 tonight. It is using the Election 2020 logo as well which still looks nice.
