Communications Minister announces €2.5m for commercial independent radio sector

The Communications Minister has announced funding of 2 and a half million euro for the commercial independent radio sector.

Richard Bruton says local and independent radio stations have a crucial role to play in responding to the Covid 19 pandemic.

It’s after he announced earlier this week the Broadcasting Levy payable by the radio sector would be waived for the first six months of the year, saving local radio and independent stations around 1 million euro
