Radio Nova granted licence for Dublin rock station

9 09 2008

The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI) have awarded Radio Nova a commercial radio licence fo a new classic rock station in Dublin, to begin broadcasting from August 2009. Despite applications for the licence from two other contenders – Rock Radio and Classic Rock Radio – the licence was awarded without an oral hearing – a first for the BCI. Phantom FM broke the mould in 2004 when they were granted a licence from the BCI to broadcast an alternative music station after years operating as a pirate station. Personally I can’t wait to have another alternative to Westlife and breakfast DJ’s. For the full story click here.
