The Independent Broadcasters of Ireland Launch New Website

The Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI), the representative body for Ireland’s independent commercial radio broadcasters, has launched a new website www.ibireland.ie which is a resource on independent broadcasting in Ireland and also provides live streams of all its member radio stations in one place.

“The broadcasting landscape has altered significantly and more and more people are listening to their radio online while travelling or at work. www.ibireland.ie  provides radio listeners with a portal to all 34 national, regional and local radio stations which are members of the IBI.  It streamlines access to the airwaves for online listeners as well as providing broadcasters with another channel to reach their target audiences,” said Scott Williams, Chairman of the IBI.

“The new website is also a resource for access to information on independent broadcasting in Ireland.  Members of the public will be able to access IBI submissions to industry consultations as well news and information on the sector and individual radio stations.”

“With more than 1500 people employed in the sector, independent broadcasters make a significant economic, social and cultural contribution to the Irish economy. The new website is another way to highlight the importance of the broadcasting sector in Ireland”.
