RTÉ Radio - Longwave Closure Postponed

The imminent closure of the Irish public broadcaster’s longwave service we reported last week has been postponed until January 19, 2015. Its original shut down date was next week, October 27.
The Managing Director of RTÉ Radio Jim Jennings plans to travel to the UK to meet with community groups affected by the loss of service to see what other solutions might be found for them. Longwave is the only RTÉ radio service that reaches the UK, though the global Irish diaspora can also listen online.
The outcry over the closure was greater than expected, but Jennings says the longwave service is still set to be shuttered.
