TXFM win IMRO award for supporting Irish music

Communicorp’s local indie-rock station, TXFM (formerly Phantom 105.2) has won the IMRO independent radio award for its commitment to supporting Irish music creators.

The award was presented by Sean Donnegan, director of broadcasting and online at IMRO to Paul Lynch, financial controller of TXFM at the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI) annual conference last week.

Peter McPartlin, CEO of TXFM said: “We’re committed to helping the development of Irish music and Irish musicians, giving prominence to both in our schedules. Receiving the IMRO Radio Award is testament to this and to the commitment of the TXFM staff to the promotion of Irish music”.

Keith Johnson, director of marketing and membership, said: “IMRO represents songwriters, composers and music publishers across all genres and the support of independent radio in bringing outstanding musical talent to the wider public is critical to their success.  The award reflects the commitment of everyone in TXFM to supporting music creators”.

TXFM, which was re-branded from Phantom 105.2 over a year ago to become Today FM’s “little sister” station, broadcasts locally in Dublin from Marconi House in the city centre, playing everything from indie & classic rock to Britpop & Punk Rock, and say their main focus is on new Irish acts.

    Hi Niall,

    I have always enjoyed your articles on Radio Today and wondered how you got into this area. I also listened to you when you were on Radio Nova and you were brilliant with a great voice. What do you think of the current set up of Radio stations in Dublin? I listen to alot of radio as its my passion. I’m hoping to study media in September. What do you think of FM104 and 98Fm? Why is their so much rivalry amongst different radio stations? Thanks Andrew

      Hi Andrew. Thanks for your kind words, but this is an article about TXFM and isn’t really the place to openly discuss me or my thoughts on Dublin radio. If you want to contact me personally, you can do so through my personal web site at http://niallok.ie/ … thanks.
