RTE TV "THE LATE LATE SHOW" Exec. Producer JIM JENNINGS has been named Head of RTE RADIO 1, the national broadcaster in IRELAND. JENNINGS replaces ANA LEDDY, who earlier this year announced that she would not be renewing her contract for the position but will remain as a producer.
JENNINGS, who started in radio at RTE, said, "I am really delighted to make this move back to radio and RTE RADIO 1 in particular. RADIO 1 occupies a unique place in the daily lives of over a million listeners. As a mixed-genre station, RADIO 1 also has unique challenges and opportunities. I look forward to getting to grips with both."
