New radio stations choose IRN

Four new radio stations due to launch in the next 6 months, including Emap's 24 hour talk station City Talk, have secured the services of IRN as their national news supplier. Original 106, JACK fm and Herefordshire and Monmouthshire Classic Hits will also take the audio and text feeds.

Liverpool's City Talk will launch in early 2008 and will be the only 24 hour speech-based station in England outside London, and CanWest's Original 106 in Aberdeen launches next month with a strong emphasis on news programming.

The first JACK fm outside the USA will also launch next month, and is owned by Absolute Radio. Laser Broadcasting's first and only licence win Herefordshire and Monmouthshire Classic Hits have also signed up with IRN for national news coverage from launch, planned for October.

John Perkins, Managing Director of IRN said: “We’re delighted to have all four stations on board – especially as they all have such different and distinctive formats. It’s heartening to see that whatever the output of the stations and whatever their target audience, they recognise the value of high quality news and we look forward to having them on board with IRN“.
