RTÉ has dismissed calls give free ads to state bodies

City Channel boss, David Harvey, told the Communications Minister, Eamon Ryan, he should compel RTÉ to use unsold ad airtime ‘for practical purposes which are in the national interest’ and that the ad slots should be given to state bodies which have had their advertising budgets cut.

The minister has yet to respond to the request, whilst RTÉ dismissed supporting the RSA campaigns in such was as invidious as RTÉ supports the RSA editorially.
