It was announced this afternoon that Irish journalist John Waters has resigned from his position at the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.


The BAI confirmed today that it had received notification of Waters’ resignation from Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte.

Waters was appointed to the BAI by the Government in 2009. Since then, he has served as an Authority member, has served a two-year term on the Compliance Committees and was a serving member of the Contract Awards Committee up until his resignation.

“John has been a valued member of the Authority and of both statutory committees since the establishment of the BAI in 2009,”  said BAI chairperson, Bob Collins. “He brought additional expertise and experience to the Authority through his previous service on the Board of the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his service and know I speak for my fellow members when I say that his insights and contributions will be missed.”
