radio.ie is working on podcasting and radio research, working where radio meets social, radio’s oral history with the pirate.ie project, also working on “demand radio on demand” via mental health radio station Shining Bright Radio and last but not least applying some R&D into a new ‘podcast channel’ player over in the radio lab. Following a masters in DCU which explored social media communications and how podcasting is impacting in the radio industry RADIO.IE is experimenting with new methods of radio engagement to harness the power of social and the resonance of radio to bring audience experience closer to the broadcast message.
[25.02.2019] Our newest radio service is called UPˢᵗʳᵉᵃᵐ and is in BETA testing right now. 5 Radio stations are working with radio.ie to road test the new service which takes the pain out of archiving radio programmes by automatically uploading the scheduled programmes to the cloud. Flirt FM, 8Radio, Real FM, GCR Digital Radio and Shining bright radio are all using the service which uses the Mixcloud API to offer the stations a listen again service for all programmes. The service is due to go live in April 2019 and will cost €14.99 per week.
