Mr Scott Williams has been appointed vice chairman of the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI), the representative body for Ireland’s independent commercial broadcasters.
A veteran of independent broadcasting in Ireland, Scott Williams was the first voice heard on independent radio in July 1989. He is currently CEO of Dublin based radio station Q102 and also presents the station’s daily drive-time show, ‘On the QT”.
Independent radio in Ireland has never been stronger. Over 63% of the population tune into independent radio on a daily basis which translates into weekday figures of almost 2.3 million listeners. With more than 1500 people employed in the sector, independent broadcasters make a significant economic, social and cultural contribution to the Irish economy.
The IBI represents 2 national, 4 regional and 26 local radio stations across Ireland.
