She paid tribute to the staff who ‘spoke out against bad behaviour’ under difficult circumstances.
Plaid Cymru spokesperson for culture Heledd Fychan MS said,
“This report is shocking and needs to be a turning point for the channel.
“I would like to commend the S4C staff who spoke out against bad behaviour under extremely difficult circumstances.
“S4C is a national organization that is an integral part of our Welsh culture and creative economy, and we deserve reassurance that the channel takes their unique role as a public broadcaster seriously.
“We look forward to engaging with S4C during parliamentary scrutiny in the Senedd and in Westminster to seek assurance that the appropriate steps are being taken to restore confidence in our channel.
