RTÉ Radio 1 has relaunched its website with a fresh new look and an easier way for listeners to find specific show content.
The station says social media tools and a better Listen Live link have been give particular attention with Facebook and Twitter feeds on the homepage.
Managing Director of RTÉ Radio, Clare Duignan, told RTÉ TEN: “Our research demonstrated that over half of those who visit radio websites like to ‘listen live’.
“Of those who prefer to ‘listen back’, 90% stated that the most important feature for them is to be able to choose an item or topic rather than listen to the whole programme.
RTÉ Radio 1’s Pat Kenny said: “We are very excited about our new beefed up website, its user friendly where listeners can search for items and contributors that they can listen back to.
“That can be anything from a debate on property tax, to an interview with Hilary Mantel or Salman Rushdie or Catherine Fulvio’s favourite pasta recipe. Listeners can also access all our consumer items with Tina Leonard in one place.”
Presenter Derek Mooney said: “The new RTÉ website is going to make that even easier for us as its user friendly, simple to navigate and uncluttered. You can find what you’re looking for without any stress.”
