Claire gives an emotial farewell on Dublin’s TXFM

It’s been an emotional day of broadcasting so far, with Daytime presenter Claire Beck breaking down in tears when saying goodbye.

Her final song, she says, was very fitting, Together in electric dream by Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder.

Social media is already full of messages of grief for the Dublin station, on today, its final day.

TXFM launched full time in 2006 as Phantom 105.2 before being rebranded in 2014 in a bid to boost ratings and profits. But in March this year, owners decided to announce the closure of the station before the end of the year.

Twitter is full of message for the team at the station, resulting in #TXFM being the top trend in Dublin. Stable-mate Today FM ran a feature on the station’s final day.

Here are some of the messages so far today:
