RTÉ is being called on to clarify if more of its presenters have car deals.
It follows the apology from sports journalist Marty Morrissey who revealed yesterday he was the one who had a car loaned to him by Renault for a period of five years.
He’s described it as an “error of judgement” .
While RTÉ has clarified that while the car was returned in June, management wasn’t aware of it until earlier this week.
Meanwhile only yesterday, Peugeot Ireland named Kathryn Thomas as its latest brand ambassador.
Incoming Director General Kevin Bakhurst says he’ll outline his plans for the ‘reconsitution’ of the executive board on Monday.
Labour Senator and member of the Oireachtas Media Committee Marie Sherlock is hoping for major changes.
“It was clear he has a plan. It’s not clear exactly what is that plan but I think we have to give him a chance to go in and make very profound changes within RTE in order to reinstall confidence and trust of the public and importantly the staff.”
