FIANNA FAIL PROPOSALS FOR LOCAL RADIO

Independent broadcasters have welcomed plans from Fianna Fáil to set aside some of the TV licence fee for local radio.

Currently local stations can only access just over 10 euro of the licence fee for specific programmes – but that portion can also be claimed by RTE.
