In his new role, Terry will report to Local Content Controller for Cork’s 96FM and C103, Brendan O’Driscoll.
Terry said: “I am very excited to be joining such a talented team at Cork’s 96FM. The Opinion Line is a hugely respected and trusted brand in Cork and it is a privilege to be taking on the role of Editor.”
Brendan added: “I am looking forward to welcoming Terry to our team at Broadcasting House in Cork. He was appointed after a rigorous recruitment process which saw interest from many suitably qualified candidates.
“We were very impressed with Terry’s experience and his product knowledge. I am confident he will play a significant role in driving the programme to meet our ambitions.”
