Here’s some good news for radio fans and media students.
Today FM and Newstalk have announced the launch of a new broadcast studio in Cork City.
The state-of-the-art studio will be located at Republic of Work at No. 12 South Mall as part of a three-year partnership that will see both national stations broadcast regularly from the purpose-built facility.
It will also facilitate podcast recording and production and allow local guest contributors to join radio panels and interviews from the Cork studio.
