first_imgRTE may be about to axe its regional offices in Letterkenny and Sligo, it was reported today.Only Cork and Galway are thought to be safe from the cutbacks which come after the closure of the London office, the Evening Herald in Dublin reports.An RTE source told the Herald: “Whole swaths of the country could be left with little or no coverage of stories and events if the news-gathering operation becomes more Dublin-centred.” An RTE spokesman said the only closure announced to date has been the London one. “No other decisions have been made at this point,” he added.The London bureau is expected to close in September following the Olympics, while, in Dublin, sources say morale at the station is “horrendous”.RTE will make cuts of €25m in total, €15m from staff costs.  RTE TO AXE LETTERKENNY AND SLIGO OFFICES? was last modified: April 24th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:RTE TO AXE LETTERKENNY AND SLIGO OFFICES?last_img
