Radio presenters from around the country are taking part in the to Ice Bucket Challenge in an attempt to raise awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.
On national radio, Ryan Tubridy got dunked in the studio, Marty Whelan had a nice outdoor setting at RTÉ, and Ray D’Arcy took the challenge whilst on holiday. At 2FM, Jenny Greene and Nicky Byrne also did the challenge.
At Spin, CEO Jamie Crawford nominated the entire programming team, who lined up outside Grand Canal Quay.
“The Afternoon Show’s” Jonny O’Keeffe & Colm Gallagher from “60’s at Six” on Shannonside Northern Sound also completed the challenge, whilst Radio Nova’s Marty Miller and Dee Woods also joined in with the occasion.
There are lots more too – including WLR FM’s Maria McCann, Classic Hits 4FM’s Niall Boylan, iRadio’s Cooper and Oonagh, Cork’s 96FM’s Nick Richards, Ken Tobin, Deirdre and Street Team, and Beat 102 103 news’ Kolyn and Gail Conway. Here’s what the Lazy Afternoon show team from Ocean FM got up to.
There are no doubt dozens more, and we’re adding them here as we find them. Let us know your video link via firstname.lastname@example.org
