This Week In Radio 11/9/2021

Lots happens in the radio industry each week so here’s a summary of the week we just enjoyed.

Here’s what happened

A new education bursary has been set up in memory of RTÉ broadcaster Marian Finucane. The fund will support women financially, helping them to access further education.

“There is a simple basic truth – if you educate a woman, you educate a family: If you educate a man, he gets a job. This has been proven time and time again.”

Everyone has a youthful side, and RTE is no exception. The new schedule for RTÉ Junior radio was published this week and there’s plenty to keep you or the little ones tuning in. You can listen to RTÉ Junior radio using the RTÉ radio player app, on the radio land listen page and by telling Alexa to play RTÉ Junior. It’s so simple a child could do it.
