RTE figures innacurate
Sir -- Two articles (Sunday Independent, Dec 20, 2009) presented multiple inaccuracies concerning RTÉ's business and trading and the remuneration of the Director General.
Daniel McConnell's article (page five, main section) stated that Cathal Goan as DG of RTE is paid a "total package worth over €400,000". In fact Mr Goan's total remuneration under all headings from RTÉ as audited and published in RTÉ's Annual Report for 2008 is €348,000.
Pay reductions voluntarily undertaken will result in Cathal Goan's 2009 remuneration being reduced by more than 18 per cent compared to 2007.
