Statement on the Resignation of John Waters from BAI

The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has, today (23.01.14), confirmed receipt of a notification from the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte, of the resignation of Mr. John Waters from the Authority.  Mr Waters was appointed to the Authority by the Government in September 2009.

Since his appointment, he has served as an Authority member; served a two-year term on the Compliance Committee; and was a serving member of the Contract Awards Committee at the time of his resignation.

Speaking about the resignation of Mr. Waters, the Chairperson of the Authority, Bob Collins said: “John has been a valued member of the Authority and of both statutory committees since the establishment of the BAI in 2009.  He brought additional expertise and experience to the Authority through his previous service on the Board of the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI).  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.”
