There's some potentially great news for rock & indie fans around the country...
The Dublin rock station, Radio Nova, has applied to the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland to go nationwide. It'll be interesting to see how the news plays with 2fm who've been losing ground to Nova in the capital and mightn't fancy the extra competition around the country. The plot thickens with former 2fm man Colm Hayes the new Nova Programme Director and veteran 2fm DJ Ruth Scott being added to their Saturday night schedule.
In another interesting development, the online and temporary licence station, 8.Radio.com, run by former Phantom man Simon Maher, wants to provide a full-time alternative rock service in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway "with a view to extending to other urban centres in the future."
Having asked for submissions of interest in June, the BAI has been contacted by 13 parties who want to run new or upgraded analogue FM services. The others have yet to be named.
