• Phantom to launch on Halloween

    Phantom FM have announced today that they will finally launch their fully-fledged FM service on 105.2FM, starting on the 31st of October. The station will be available to Dublin city and council listeners and will naturally be available online for anyone outside of it’s range.

    The launch has been coming a long time; Phantom FM have made numerous attempts at securing a full-time licence and finally won one in 2004 only to face major delays while Zed FM, the consortium that lost out to Phantom, took the BCI to court over its decision.
    That issue was resolved earlier this year and the staff have been busy organising the finer details that a launch entails; studio, staffing, marketing etc.

    As an aside, the very best of luck to everyone who will be called in for interviews in the next few weeks; hopefully we’ll see Phantom giving plenty of new talent an opportunity to get their foot into the Irish media scene (as it has done for many while broadcasting as a pirate) and hopefully that new talent won’t disappoint.
