The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (“BAI”) has published the BAI Right of Reply Scheme.

The Scheme provides for the broadcast of a Right of Reply Statement that will facilitate the correction of incorrect information which has been broadcast and which has resulted in a person’s honour or reputation being impugned. The Scheme details the process for exercising a Right of Reply and the manner in which our listeners can avail of this process.

The BAI has developed the Scheme further to the requirements of the Broadcasting Act, 2009. It is intended to provide an opportunity for listeners to exercise their right to the correction of incorrect information without recourse to legal proceedings which may prove time-consuming and costly.

If you wish to request a Right of Reply, you should contact Martin Maguire, Programme Manager at Today FM.  You can email him directly at complaints@todayfm.com
