Radio student gets a weekly show on WLR FM

Radio student Rachael O’Shea will join the WLR line-up to host a new Friday Night music show starting this week.

Called ‘The Social Network’, the show will feature club classics from the 1990s and 2000s.

Rachael hails from Tramore and has a real passion for radio and has recently completed the WLR/WIT Broadcasting Course. Rachel also works in the promotions department in WLR for the last number of months.

Michael Byrne is WLR’s Programme Director and told RadioToday about the move: “Rachael has worked very hard to get her foot in the door at WLR and we are delighted to be giving her the chance on-air. We’ve been planning this for some-time and we are all set to go this Friday night.”

The show will be online and interactive with contributions and request through social media sites like Snapchat, Facebook and WhatsApp.

Rachael O’Shea says she is looking forward to the new programme: “I’ve worked for WLR for quite some time. I’ve always had a passion for a radio. Working on The Street Team and in the promotions department has given me a great insight to the depth of work that goes on behind the scenes, and I can’t wait to see it all from another angle.”

The Social Network on WLR airs this Friday night from 7pm.
