BCI reduces planned new licences from four to two | Print |  Email
Wednesday, 03 March 2004

The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI) will not now issue four new radio licences in Dublin, as formerly expected: it has opted instead for two, and is understood to be seeking expressions of interest in a multicultural radio station and an alternative rock station. The move was motivated by a desire to help the stability of existing broadcasters, including newer entrants like Newstalk and Spin FM, the BCI says. The mooted new licences had already attracted 61 submissions from major media and business groups, ranging from major newspaper and TV organisations such as Irish Press and TV3, to private bodies and existing pirate radio stations.
