Cork’s 103FM to change name to C103

Cork’s 103FM is changing name. From Wednesday February 6th the station will be known as C103. The new C103 will be available on the same frequencies as Cork’s 103FM and has been designed to offer an entertaining and informative local radio service that is different to anything currently available in the Cork marketplace. In addition, a new programming schedule will be implemented.

The C103 schedule will include a new countywide afternoon show presented by Eric Griffin and a new countywide evening drivetime show fronted by former television presenter Martina O Donoghue.

Kieran McGeary, CEO of Cork’s 96FM and C103, is looking forward to February 6th: “Re-branding Cork’s 103FM to C103 is a very exciting time as it offers us an opportunity to make some subtle changes to the service which will ensure that listeners will love the station even more. We have already developed a very strong and loyal audience over the years and we will continue to satisfy these listeners with our distinctively local talk shows for the north and west Cork regions, our unrivalled GAA coverage and our commitment to country and Irish music. We also believe, however, that the all new C103 will appeal to people not already listening to the station. We are confident that they will love our great mix of music, chat and regular local news updates as well as information on what is happening right across the county. We look forward to developing C103 into a complimentary service for its sister station, Cork’s 96FM, and growing the already hugely impressive audience figures for the combined stations.”
