New broadcasting licence for Limerick City Community Radio

Limerick City Community Radio Chairman Richard Smith

LIMERICK City Community Radio (LCCR) has been granted another 100-day pilot sound broadcasting licence.

The licence, granted by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), takes effect from this Saturday, January 21.

LCCR is Limerick City’s first and only non-profit community station that is entirely community-run through volunteers.

LCCR Chairman Richard Smith said the team were looking forward to entertaining and informing their listenership for another year.

“The door at LCCR is always open to community groups and organisations to either come in and talk about their organisations or even have their own slot either online or FM. The same goes for anyone that has an idea and would like to discuss it with us,” he added.

As well as the weekend FM service, LCCR also runs an online service Monday to Friday with live programmes from 8am to 6pm, with repeats of weekend shows from 6pm.

The use of LCCR’s 99.9FM frequency is with thanks to Wired FM, Limerick’s student station licenced by the BAI. Anyone wishing to get involved can contact the station by email on volunteer@lccr.i
