Football Costs Fueled Spanish Broadcaster SRT Spending Excess, Audit Reveals

Spanish Radio Television has been revealed to have carried out economic waste in a recent audit of the company's spending, according to LIBERTAD DIGITAL. The company went from spending €27M in '09 to €45M in '11, exceeding the country's legal limit. The high broadcasting cost was most notable for the airing of the Spanish national football team, which cost €42,000 ($54,655) per minute (LIBERTAD DIGITAL, 4/17).
