CSN College celebrates 20 years of radio broadcast training

CSN College in Cork City is celebrating 20 years of radio broadcast training with an event at SoHo Cork this weekend.

Former students and members of the radio industry will gather for an evening of entertainment on Saturday night, April 13th.

Course Director Peter O’Neill states “We have come a long way from the back of a classroom to a €100,000 digital facility”.

Since 1999 Radio Broadcasting at CSN Cork has been instrumental in securing employment for its graduates in radio in Ireland and abroad. Past students have collectively won 7 PPI awards for their achievements in the radio industry. A current second-year radio student Sean Ryan has been shortlisted for “Radio DJ of the Year” at the National student media awards.

“This course was amazing!” says Katie O’Keeffe, a recent graduate of the course now completing her degree in a one-year top in Colaiste Dhulaigh in Dublin.

“I gained industry insights, knowledge and experience during my two years on this course” says fellow graduate Sean Hurley, now completing his top up radio degree year in the University of Sunderland.
