Solas AM

No light for Solas AM

The future of a yet-to-broadcast religious radio station for Dublin is in doubt following a public row with RTÉ over transmission sites. Michael O’Carroll of Solas AM, himself a former head of radio in Montrose, received correspondence from Liam Miller of RTÉ stating that RTÉ were not in a position to offer Solas AM the use of transmission facilities at their Beaumont site. Solas AM claim that they received agreement for the use of these sites by telephone before last year’s oral hearings leading to the award of the licence to the new station. RTÉ are denying that this is the case.
