UTV Irish station raises £300k for charity

Irish UTV Media station Cork’s 96FM has raised more than £300,000 in just three days to support local cancer services.

The ‘Giving for Living Radiothon’, broadcast live from a studio at the city’s Mercy Hospital, brought in €391,723, which is around £315,000.

This year was the fifth annual event of its kind by the station.

Chief Executive of Cork’s 96FM and C103, Kieran McGeary, told RadioToday.co.uk: “We are completely astounded at the generosity shown yet again by the people of Cork despite the ever difficult economic situation. The figure will increase in the coming days as more money comes in. Cork’s 96fm Radiothons have now raised in excess of €1.7million over five years and I am very proud of all of our staff for the hard work and professional approach to this event each year.”
