Spirit Radio’s schedule includes a range of Christian and Mainstream Music complemented by News, Current Affairs and Special Interest speech programming.

Spirit Radio was represented at the contract signing by Tom Ascough (Chairperson), Carole Browne (Secretary), and Rob Clarke (CEO). Siobhán Ní Ghadhra, Member of the Authority and Michael O’Keeffe, Chief Executive, signed on behalf of the BAI.
