No one wanted 'Morning Ireland' job

A VACANCY for the position of editor on the popular RTE radio news programme 'Morning Ireland' attracted no internal applicants "who met the criteria for the position", a spokesman for the station confirmed.

The vacancy for one of the editorial positions was advertised internally among the station's 1,800 staff two months ago but attracted a poor response.

It is believed that the reluctance of RTE staff to apply for the position is down to the anti-social shifts on the programme.

These require a start time of 5am on the 'early' shift while the 'late' starts at 4pm and finishes at midnight. However, shifts are rotated so nobody stays on one shift for too long.

RTE said that it is considering re-advertising the vacancy.
