Spirit FM to broadcast to Carlow from Bray studio
Bray-based Spirit Radio is spreading its wings, with the Christian radio station now broadcasting in Carlow.
The people of Carlow are now listening to the station’s mix of music, news and talk programming on 90.5 FM. The station, which was founded five years ago, draws 540,000 listeners a week and is proving to be a surprising competitor of some of the larger national radio stations. According to Amárach Research, Spirit Radio is a hit with 25 to 34 year olds. Largely music driven, the Spirit programming is upbeat, positive and contemporary. The station aims to appeal to people from a broad range of backgrounds who are looking to reflect on some of the deeper questions of life.
Programmes include The Breakfast Show with Mark and Rebecca, the Morning Chat Show with Wendy Grace, and a mix of national and international news.
‘ The station is continuing to grow its listenership and we are really excited about the future,’ said CEO Rob Clarke.
