The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has today (April 8th) announced details of an oral presentation to be held for the niche, music-driven radio licence for the Dublin City and County franchise area.

The oral presentation will take place on Monday 14th April, in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin 8. It will commence at 2.30 p.m., and is open to attendance by members of the public. The BAI received two applications for the licence from Star Broadcasting Limited (trading as Sunshine 106.8) and Easy FM Limited (trading as Country FM).

The oral presentation will be conducted by the Contract Awards Committee, a statutory committee of the BAI which has responsibility for the assessment of any applications received in a licensing process. The purpose of the oral presentations is to provide each applicant with the opportunity to make a presentation to the Contract Awards Committee, based on the application submitted and to answer any questions or clarifications that the Committee may have in relation to the application. The time allocated for each applicant is one hour, consisting of a 15-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer session of approximately 30 minutes. The Q&A session will be led by the Chairperson of the Contract Awards Committee.
Following completion of the oral presentation process, the Contract Awards Committee will then assess and score both applications received. Once assessment and scoring is completed, a recommendation will be made to the Authority of the BAI.
Copies of the applications received for the music-driven niche radio service for Dublin City and County are available to view on the BAI website.
