103.2 Dublin City fm has launched a new programme schedule for 2014, covering immigrant artists living in Dublin, money issues, indie music, soccer for schoolchildren and more.
In total there are six new programmes and the station celebrated the launch of new LiveDrive high visibility safety vests for cyclists and pedestrians. The LiveDrive traffic programme has been broadcasting since 2005 in partnership with Dublin City Council’s Traffic Management Centre.
Speaking at the launch Mick Hanley, the CEO of Dublin City fm said: “We are delighted to expand the range of programmes which reflects the diversity in the City. The station broadcasts a hundred programmes every week and we are delighted to compliment our schedule with six new programmes.”
In attendance from Dublin City Council were City Manager Owen Keegan along with Corporate Communications Manager Karl Mitchell, Director of Traffic Michael Phillips and Head of Technical Services Brendan O’ Brien. 103.2 Dublin City fm was represented by Chairperson Margaret Roche, CEO Mick Hanley, Directors Ellen Gunning and Frederick Moran and the LiveDrive programme team.
“103.2 Dublin City fm’s LiveDrive has been broadcasting from Dublin City Council’s Traffic Control Centre for eight years now. It’s the only radio traffic service with access to Dublin City Council’s traffic camera network and so it’s the only live, on-the-spot traffic information”, says Michael Phillips. LiveDrive broadcasts from 7.10am and 4-7pm every day.
