Billy Patterson, the first voice heard on Highland Radio in 1990 is heading back to the station as a board member, along with local director Patricia McBride.
Donegal Highland Radio Chairman, Gerry Rabbitt says the station is very excited to welcome the pair to the Board.
“Both have made huge contributions to cultural and social life in Donegal and we look forward to drawing on their expertise to ensure that Highland Radio continues to deliver a valuable service to our listeners and customers.”
Billy was one of the original founding members of Highland Radio and a previous managing director and board member, and has worked in radio all his life.
He’ll also be presenting the Highland Radio ‘Top Team’ quiz on Sunday evenings at 9pm.
Patricia McBride is a director of An Grianàn Theatre and a member of the Board of the Errigal Arts Festival, and the station says she will ensure that Highland Radio remains at the fore of supporting Irish culture and heritage.
Patricia’s career in professional arts management spans over twenty years working in various organisations such as London’s Haymarket Theatre and Belfast’s The Lyric Theatre.
