RTE, Merlin Renew Contract

Radio Telefís Eireann, Ireland’s national public service broadcaster, has renewed its contract with Merlin Communications to broadcast RTE programming on Merlin’s short wave network.
Merlin will transmit daily programming offering comprehensive coverage of RTE’s key target areas worldwide.
Kevin Healy, RTE director of public affairs, said, “We are glad that Merlin will be helping us in making RTE programming available to audiences outside Ireland. For many Irish people living in remote areas, our short wave programming provides a valuable information service.”
Merlin transmits more than 1,000 hours of both short and medium wave radio broadcast every day for major international broadcasters including Nippon Hoso Kyokai, Radio Canada International and Voice of America.
