About RTÉ Gold

Listen to the online radio of RTÉ Gold live, which officially launched in 2008 along with RTÉ’s other digitally distributed sister stations. It is owned by Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ), which is Ireland’s National Public Service Broadcaster. RTÉ Gold is the flagship station for greatest hits in RTÉ’s radio portfolio. However, it offers a bit more than your typical Greatest Hits station. Unlike the usual 70s and 80s selection, RTÉ Radio Gold's musical time-span stretches across five decades, covering the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and even the 00s. While it might seem unusual to talk about the greatest hits of the 90s and 00s, as time passes, the best songs of these decades must be recognized as "greatest hits" for future generations. Whether the broadcaster will be proven right in this endeavor remains to be seen, but it's clear that the station approaches this mission with enthusiasm. Weekday mornings are enriched with the best pop music from five decades under the careful supervision of Will Leahy from 7am to 10am during "Gold Breakfast with Will Leahy". This show offers a nostalgic journey through the decades of music history.

RTÉ Gold slogan: "The Greatest Hits of All Time"

RTE digital radio services to continue online
RTÉ is ending transmissions on DAB digital radio at the end of March, but its DAB-only services will now continue online. Previously, the broadcaster announced it would end DAB transmissions and close RTÉ Gold, RTÉ 2XM, RTÉ Radio 1 Extra, RTÉ Pulse, and RTÉjr Radio. But in a U-turn, these stations will survive due to feedback from listeners. RTÉ says its decision to cease DAB transmission was driven by three main factors – the fact that DAB was the least utilised platform in Ireland; that RTÉ is the only Irish broadcaster on the DAB system, and cost avoidance...More >>
