The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has announced details of an oral presentation to be held for the local radio licence for the Sligo/North Leitrim/South Donegal franchise area.
The oral presentation will take place on Monday 28th April, in the Clarion Hotel, Sligo.
It will commence at 10.00 a.m. and is open to attendance by members of the public.
The BAI received two applications for the licence from NW Coast FM Limited (trading as Coast FM) and Northwest Broadcasting Limited (trading as Ocean FM).
The oral presentation will be conducted by the Contract Awards Committee, a statutory committee of the BAI, which has responsibility for the assessment of any applications received in a licensing process.
The purpose of the oral presentations is to provide each applicant with the opportunity to make a presentation to the Contract Awards Committee, based on the application submitted and to answer any questions or clarifications that the Committee may have in relation to the application.
Following completion of the oral presentation process, the Contract Awards Committee will then assess and score both applications received.
Once assessment and scoring is completed, a recommendation will be made to the Authority of the BAI. It is expected that a recommendation will issue to the Authority in the coming months.
