Director-General of RTÉ to step down

The Director-General of RTÉ Noel Curran is to stand-down from his role next year.

Mr Curran will stand down from May next year having held the position since 2011.

The role will be filled by public competition in a process overseen by the RTÉ Board.

"It has been my privilege to lead RTÉ through a time of considerable challenge, change, upheaval and innovation – both internally and in the wider market," he said.

"While many more challenges remain, I think the organisation is well placed to meet them. There is still a lot of work to be done before my departure in May.

"Through the considerable efforts of staff, management and independent producers the organisation is on a more stable footing.

"Most importantly, through all their combined talents, RTÉ continues to produce strong programming, continues to innovate, and has made the transition to a modern digital media organisation."
