RTE will be significantly slimmed down following the news the broadcaster is to shed 400 jobs over the next 4 years.

Its expected to cost RTE in the region of 40 Million Euro.

The news comes as staff get the opportunity to examine the broadcasters new strategic plan today.

In a separate development The Public Accounts Committee will meet this morning to discuss a note taken during a meeting in relation to Ryan Tubridy’s contract.

The Chair of PAC Brian Stanley said that RTE must have a credible workable plan in place in order to restore confidence.

‘The Public Accounts Committee are very interested in seeing that there’s a credible strategic plan on the way forward for RTE and I think the new senior executives team there, are clear of what’s required here in terms of rebuilding public trust in terms of the Oireachtas or Government awarding extra funding for RTE.’
