Discussion about RTE News

News2Day will survive as it comes under RTE's remit of home grown children's programming

It doesn’t have to be on television though. It’s still programming if they bump it online.

One thing in its favour it is that the studio is staffed anyway during those hours.

Yes I had noticed that too! The camera shots were very tight and there was no standing presentation by Sharon on tonight nine bulletin. I suspect there was an technical issue with the video wall tonight.

It has just been announced that David McCullagh will join Caitriona Perry as co-presenter of the RTÉ Six-One News from September. He replaces the late Keelin Stanley who died in February.

Ray Kennedy, who has been filling in on Six One for a large chunk of the last while, will anchor the weekend Six One and Nine O’Clock News bulletins.

It is back to normal for tonight's Nine O'Clock News.

Also Prime Time is broadcasting back in it's normal studio from tonight.

I see that, what was wrong with the studio?

RTÉ Six-One was on for the full hour with two presenters this evening. Caitriona Perry & Eileen Whelan were presenting it.
