24 July 2012 | 0
RTE subsidiary company RTE Transmission Network Ltd (RTE NL) is to be rebranded as part of an ongonig restructuring at the national broadcaster. In addition, the subsidiary’s headquarters will be located away from RTE’s Donnybrook campus. A new board of directors, including independent directors, along with a new independent chairman, will be appointed.
Noel Curran, director general of RTE, said: "The repositioning of RTE NL means that the company will be able to take full advantage of developments in broadcast services markets nationally and internationally. While RTÉ NL will remain a subsidiary of RTE, these changes will allow it to become a true leader in broadcast delivery technology. The recent, and successful, roll-out of the infrastructure for SAORVIEW clearly demonstrates RTE NL’s ability to deliver, and this repositioning will put it in the best position to build on its competencies and achievements."
RTÉ NL operates a network of some 170 distribution and transmission sites across Ireland. It provides broadcast distribution and transmission services to the Irish television and radio channels, including national services such as RTÉ One and RTE Two, TV3, TG4, Today FM, RTÉ Radio 1, 2fm, lyric fm, RnaG and Newstalk, as well as regional and local radio services such as Clare FM, Kerry Radio, Spin FM, etc. In addition to broadcast, RTE NL also provides services into the telecommunications industry.
