IRN ends ITN contract, hires Sky

Independent Radio News has dumped its long-time news supplier ITN in favour of a new deal with Sky News.

The new contract automatically makes Sky the dominant supplier of national news to UK commercial and community radio stations.

Sky News Radio, headed up by Andy Ivy, will now service more than 250 radio stations which use the IRN service in addition to current clients such as Classic FM, Absolute Radio and the GMG Radio Network.

Mark Wood, Chief Executive of ITN is proud of his relationship so far with the radio industry: "We have delivered an award winning news service to IRN for 16 years thanks to the dedicated team of journalists working in our radio department. We are clearly very disappointed not to be selected as preferred supplier. ITN's proposal was for a continued high quality, tightly costed, service that our client stations have come to expect from us.“
