Belfield FM

X-Gate at UCD

Student station Belfield FM, last on air for a week at the end of September, has been branded a disgrace, according to today’s Ireland on Sunday. The station ran two competitions which saw close friends of the station’s management team take the expensive prizes.
An inquiry has been launched by UCD authorities after an X-Box games console worth €300 and a top cosmetics hamper were won by people close to both the station’s manager Colman MacShealaigh, and assistant manager Louise McSharry. According to the UCD Students Union, who operate Belfield FM, there was only one entrant for the cosmetics hamper. However, the person named on air as the winner of the other prize – the X-Box – doesn’t exist.
