Local TV programming in Clare will benefit from the announcement this week of the opening of Irish TV’s new Munster regional hub.
Twenty new jobs will be created in a range of skilled media disciplines as the channel expands its range of locally-produced programming from the six Munster counties through its new Munster regional office in Tralee.
This will mean increased opportunities for programming from Clare, which already has a weekly half-hour programme called Clare Matters airing on Fridays at 7.30pm.
Clare Matters is presented by Kaelin Fox and Paraic Walsh and produced by Klaus Kappis. It can be viewed on Sky TV 191, Freesat 400, eircom eVision 191 and online at irishtv.com, and is contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Irish TV expects to be available on the Saorview platform in March, and is currently in negotiations with a range of overseas networks.
