The ABC originated relays of Premier FM on 94.3MHz and 87.6MHz are off the air this evening.
The Premier FM relays on 87.6MHz and 94.3MHz were off air all day today in Dublin.
A Dublin City Anna Livia FM presenter was dragged out of the station’s studio live on air by Gardaí when he refused to accept a change in timeslot for his programme.
Eduardo Castillo had been informed that his show had been switched from Fridays to Thursdays on the special interest station, but he still turned up on Friday February 13th. After just a few minutes on air, four Gardaí had to remove him from the studio.
Castillo was protesting the decision of the management and claims that there was very little consultation with him over the change. He has now been sacked.
Report by Pat; John Fleming
The Broadcasting Complaints Commission have upheld a complaint against an Anna Livia presenter which was made to them by his former spouse. Kenneth Reid played a number of tracks about money following a court appearance with his ex-wife over their finances. The woman claimed that this was an attempt to humiliate her.
Reid presented the show ‘Backbeat’ on the station but was suspended following the complaint and has not worked there since.
