Wired FM provides a service that entertains while at the same time creates an accessible platform for information, debate and concerns pertaining to all aspects of student life and to create an awareness of the student community in the region.
Broadcasting on 99.9fm, Wired fm transmits 48 hours of programming every week during the academic year. The station produces a wide range of programmes, including breakfast shows, student current affairs, documentaries, development education programmes, comedy, arts, book and films shows. Music shows cover every genre, from trance to traditional, to metal with an emphasis on local and unsigned talent.
Wired FM has in the past won CRAOL achievement awards, the New Adventures in Broadcasting Irish Language section, the Oxygen Student Media Awards and Glór na Gael Awards. We have successfully completed funded projects for Sound and Vision, Development Co-operation Ireland, the Ireland Funds, the National Disability Authority, The Local Environmental Awards (managed by the city council) and the AIB Better Ireland Awards.
