 Limerick City Community Radio (LCCR)  has recently been awarded another 100-day pilot sound broadcasting license for 2022.

The LCCR new broadcasting license was granted to them by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and will commence on Saturday, January 15. 

With the LCCR new broadcasting license, the station will be returning to the airwaves on Monday, January 10 online through their website, and Saturday, January 15 on 99.9fm courtesy of Wired FM, the Limerick student station which is also licensed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. LCCR runs live programmes online Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm with repeats of weekend shows from 6pm. The LCCR new broadcasting license will be put to great use through their weekend shows on 99.9fm. 

LCCR is the first and only non-profit community station in Limerick City that is community-run by volunteers. They began broadcasting in 2014, and a line-up of their shows can be found on their website. 

The station aims to provide opportunities for the promotion of a diverse range of special interest projects with a particular focus on arts, cultural, social and community interest issues, as well as promote the use of radio production as a community arts methodology to enhance community participation in the media. 

They also aim to engage a wide and diverse number of locally-based community and voluntary groups in the development, management, and operation of the project. 

LCCR would like to thank everyone who has assisted them to date, including Wired FM, CRAOL and The CRAOL Helpline, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, St Munchin’s Community Centre, Limerick Council, Limerick Enterprise Development Partnership, eLive, Windmill Motors, and all the volunteers and presenters who got the station going and are developing their programming. 

The station is currently looking for volunteers, “to enhance (our) programming,” so make sure to contact them by emailing [email protected]
