Other equipment relating to recent thefts at East Coast Radio and CKR FM was also discovered.

CKR Not In Trouble

CKR FM are denying that their future is hanging in the balance. The station’s chief executive has instead insisted that CKR FM is in “great health”. Earlier in the year it emerged that CKR Limited had been struck off the Companies Register after failing to file accounts. This led to Carlow Kildare Radio Limited being dissolved on the 16th of June.

Comment: Talk about bad timing with the station’s licence due for renewal shortly!
