TXFM is not renewing its licence, will stop broadcasting in October


The management at 105.2 TXFM did not apply to renew the radio station’s 10 year licence from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) so it will therefore cease broadcasting on October 26th at the latest.

The BAI website posted a licensing update about it today for the Music-driven (Alternative Rock) Sound Broadcasting Service that confirmed no interested party has applied for the licence.

The news was given to six full-time staff and presenters today. The Journal has more.

My new music show, which broadcasts on the station at 10pm on Thursday will continue to broadcast until further notice.

I’ve enjoyed my time on radio so much in the last two years playing tunes I love and connecting with listeners. Shoutout to John, Peter, Kelly-Anne, Joe, Claire, Cathal, Brian, Nadine, Dee, Roisin, Orlagh, Derek Byrne, Paul, Paul and Johnny, Charlotte, Tara, Esther, Kieran, Katie, Saoirse, Colm, Ed, Paul, Julia and all the Today FM crew. Special thanks to anyone who got in touch with me on the show via text or tweet.

The station was due to celebrate its second birthday tomorrow.

All of my shows are archived and available.
