Communicorp ONE to close as Media Central grows
Sales house Communicorp ONE is to close with its employees and business transferring to Media Central.
Media Central will, from August 1st, take over representing Today FM and Newstalk, in addition to its current client stations 98FM, SPIN 1038, Spin SouthWest, Beat 102-103, iRadio and Classic Hits 4FM.
Communicorp ONE launched at the beginning of 2015, handling sales for Newstalk, Today FM and TXFM, promising to bring its clients effective and impactful campaigns across all their platforms. It was based on the 5th floor of Marconi House.
Meanwhile, at Communicorp, a number of news staff at Newstalk, Today FM and 98FM/Spin/SpinSW are at risk of redundancy and being asked to re-apply for a new single Head of News role. It follows a similar move with its chief executive roles for its individual stations in Dublin.
The restructuring began shortly after Adrian Serle was appointed as the group’s chief executive.
