Adrian Lynch has been appointed Channel Controller of RTÉ One Television.
Lynch, who has been the Managing Director of Animo Television for the past eleven years, has been responsible for some of RTÉ One’s most loved and high-profile shows, such as Celebrity Bainisteoir, Secret Millionaire, Feargal Quinn’s Retail Therapy and Ireland’s Fittest Family.
Speaking about his exciting new position, Lynch said: “RTÉ One is a truly national platform with a fantastic breadth of programming, a huge reach and an extremely rich history. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with a great team to consolidate and grow RTÉ One’s position as Ireland’s favourite channel.
"I look forward to working with Irish programme makers and talent, both inside, and outside of RTÉ, to bring the very best of home-grown content to Irish audiences. I have strong roots in programme making myself, so I believe in the importance of well told stories in drama and documentary, as well as the national pulling power of live event television.”
