About Cork's 96FM

Listen to the online radio of Cork’s 96FM live, which started its broadcast in 1989 in its Cork studios, and operates as a local radio station for County Cork since in 2000 its analogue broadcasting area had been extended to the whole county. The station is in the ownership of Wireless Group.
The broadcaster primarily serves Cork city and its home county by its locally relevant news, sports, travel and weather reports, but also national and international news and sports take place in the hourly recurring news bulletins. Several talk-shows fill the radio schedule, which in every topic could have been debated, and also the listeners can have their say in the phone-ins, like the award winning talkshow The Opinion Line with PJ Coogan on weekdays from 9am to 12pm.
The station's playlist has a very diverse structure, because generally pop music is aired through the day with the biggest hits of the 90’s, 00’s and the present decade’s, but also alternative styles appear in some specialized programmes, this way oldies and Irish music, old skool, dance and even a bonus decade, the 80s vary the musical palette.
The radio relentlessly searches for new Irish bands and talents and gives national exposure to them through the radio and its social media network once per month.
Corks 96FM refreshes the weekday mornings of the county with “KC & Ross in the Morning” from 6am to 9am led by Keith Cunningham and Ross Browne, and the Saturday mornings with “Weekend Breakfast with Mark Malone”.
