About WLR FM

Listen online to the internet radio of WLR FM live here, on IrishRadioLive!
WLR FM launched officially in 1989, but also operated before as a pirate radio station for a decade. WLR FM broadcasts on FM in County Waterford and digitally over the world. WLR FM is in the ownership of The Irish Times.
WLR FM operates as a local commercial radio station which serves primarily the people of its home county as the most important information and music source. WLR FM is a multi-award winner radio station, for example it has won the “Local Station of the Year” title in 2012 at the PPI Radio Awards.
WLR FM’s playlist is built from the last 40 years’ best pop music, but also country and Irish music appear in specialist programmes. The traditional Irish culture appears not just in music, but WLR FM has native language programmes too. As a local radio WLR FM provides the air-time for debates about locally relevant politics, current affairs, community issues and every imaginable topics which could have importance are discussed in the talk shows.
WLR FM makes the oversleeping impossible on weekdays with its morning show “The BIG Breakfast Blaa” from 6am to 10am lead by Ollie Carroll and Mary O’Neill.

The popularity of the country and Irish music selection of WLR FM made the launch of a spin-off station necessary, so in 2018 the “Absolute Irish” digital radio commenced broadcasting.

You can select the “Absolute Irish” below the player!
