Spirit FM to broad­cast to Car­low from Bray stu­dio

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
