Diamond new editor of RTE's 'Prime Time'

RTE has appointed veteran 'Prime Time' reporter Donogh Diamond as the new editor of its flagship current affairs show.

Diamond, who joined 'Prime Time' in 1997, was previously a reporter and presenter on the RTE shows 'Marketplace' and 'Current Account'. Before joining RTE in 1995, he spent five years as a staff reporter in the Irish Press group.

He joins George Lee and Claire Byrne on the team, which has been restructured in the wake of the controversy over the 'Prime Time Investigates' programme 'Mission to Prey', which resulted in the departure of reporter Aoife Kavanagh and editor Ken O'Shea.
