Listeners “sad and disappointed” as RTE Gold is axed

Following the announcement that RTE will be closing a number of their digital stations in a bid to cut costs, listeners have expressed their sadness upon learning RTE Gold is among those being axed.

In the hopes of saving €60 million over the next three years, a number of modifications will be made in the station, as they scrap 200 jobs, cut the salaries of their top presenters, and sadly, close some radio shows entirely.

While RTE 2X, RTE Pulse, RTE jr Radio and RTE Radio 1 Extra are all on the chopping board, listeners are particularly upset over the closure of RTE Gold.

Taking to social media in their droves, fans of the station shared their disappointment.
