Letters: RTE making 'towst'

Sir - Declan Lynch, in his usual very witty and oft times ironic style, did not appear to understand why, with the ratings for the show going up, the people who matter in RTE decided to end Brendan O'Connor's Saturday Night Show.
Well, it's because Brendan says 'O'. He says 'phone'; he says 'coast'. Is he an eejit or what?
He must learn the RTE vocabulary where the vowel 'o' is out. He must learn to say 'Fown' (rhyming with 'town'). not 'phone'! The 'coast' is 'the cowst'.
