Communicorp Media has renewed its contract with 28 local independent radio stations across the country to provide national and international news content.
The arrangement is now in its 10th year and includes live bulletins at off-peak times and a continuous supply of news, sport, business and entertainment news across the day.
Local radio stations are provided with a selection of news stories which allows them to merge the national news stories with their local news output.
Adrian Serle, Communicorp Media Group CEO, said: “I am delighted we are able to continue our long-standing agreement with all independent stations across Ireland by signing a new long-term contract. At a time when fake news and untrustworthy, unregulated news sources are rife, radio remains rock solid, as a dependable, credible and reliable news and information provider at every moment of every day – and Communicorp Media is a market-leading example of exactly that.”
Sinead Spain, Group Head of News at Communicorp Media added: “The independent sector has a strong track record in providing quality public service broadcasting. The network feed will deliver trusted news and information service to the highest journalistic standards to supplement each stations output.
“I look forward to developing further our relationship with the network of radio stations”.
