Students bring Juice FM to Cork airwaves
Launching tomorrow in Cork’s Coláiste Stiofán Naofa, Juice FM is aiming to help the radio stars of tomorrow showcase their skills on their own all-new high-tech station.
Broadcasting from a state-of-the-art €65,000 studio in the college to the greater Cork city area, the station intends to enable students of radio broadcasting at the college to get ‘hands on’ training in a real working digital radio environment.
The two year training course has been running at Coláiste Stiofán Naofa since 1998, but course director Pete O’Neill says the birth of Juice FM, which he describes as ‘revolutionary’, has catapulted it onto another level.
The student station, which will feature a powerful custom designed CHR jingles package from Serbia-based Floyd Media, takes to the airwaves this Thursday, November 27th and can – according to its web site – be heard on 88.7FM over the next few months.
The station was also recently featured in a story on TV3’s “The 12:30” news.
