Station rebrands to Obama FM

Irish radio station i105-107fm is changing its name today (Monday) for one day only, to Obama FM.

The temporary change is to celebrate Ireland's connection to US President Elect Barack Obama's inauguration.

On Monday the station will be broadcasting all day from Moneygall in Co. Offaly – the ancesteral home of Barack Obama's great great great grandfather. The stations website, on-air imaging and content will all reflect the US President Elect's Inauguration on the 20th of January.

The i105107 Obama FM bus is currently traveling around the region spreading the word of the big day.

i105107 Program Director, Alan Swan, said the Obama bus was attracting a lot of attention: "We just thought we should do something to celebrate Barack Obama's Irish roots. It will be such a historical occasion – we had to mark it some way… and we are doing it in typical iRadio fashion!"
