Classic Hits 4FM is an independent multi-region radio station broadcasting to Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway.[1] Reception is also possible in parts of several other neighbouring counties. The station broadcasts under a sound broadcasting contract from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.[1]

Programming

Classic Hits 4FM broadcasts 60s, 70s and 80s music with a small amount of more recent music, and also has specialist programmes featuring Irish, musical theatre, and also features current affairs coverage on its daily current affairs programme broadcast from 9am-11am. Most presenters on the station have previously worked on local and national radio stations across Ireland.

Controversies

The Director of the National Women's Council Susan McKay spoke out against an "uncouth and objectionable" interview Tom McGurk conducted with her on 4fm. The National Women's Council has since refrained from giving interviews to 4fm.[2]

Mayor of Naas Darren Scully of Fine Gael apologised for comments he made on 4fm about the "aggressive attitude" of "black Africans" in November 2011. He later resigned.[3] 4fm presenter Niall Boylan said afterwards that he thought Scully had committed "political suicide" on live radio.[4]
