Competition for Limerick’s Medium Wave Licence

Two applicants for a newly-created specialist medium wave licence for Limerick presented their case at the BCI meeting in the Killeshin Hotel in Portlaoise last Monday.
Speaking for North Munster Radio, the country-and-Irish service, Billy Donegan said that the station would create nine full-time jobs with at least six part-timers also employed.
Speaking on behalf of Limerick Family Radio, the Christian service, Stephen Cardy said that their station’s main focus would be on supporting the family unit. The station plans to run on donations rather than advertising.
