WLR FM - We Love Waterford!
The original WLR, which was a pirate station, launched on June 23d 1978 broadcasting from just outside the city. This unlicensed operation was one of the longest lasting in the country and continued for just over a decade until its closure at the end of 1988 - new radio licences were to be awarded by the then IRTC (now BAI) in 1989.
At a moment WLR FM is one of the top local Radio Stations in Ireland and the dominant media force in Waterford. The station's share of the radio audience is considerably larger than that of the national and regional stations in Waterford and the quality and diversity of programmes attracts over 75% of all adults each week.
WLR FM broadcasts 24 hours a day from state of the art studios in both Waterford City and Dungarvan.
