Wired FM need volunteers to join our sub-committees

Are you currently a volunteer, would you like to have more say in the running of certain aspects of the station?

Wired FM is governed by a board of directors made up of staff and students of Mary Immaculate College, Limerick Institute of Technology and Limerick School of Art and Design, but an extension of that is our sub-committees. 

In the interests of promoting greater student involvement in the management of the station and greater continuity from year to year, a number of sub-groups have been created to report to the Board on the following topics:


Sub-Committees of the Board:


The sub-Committees will meet with the manager every month during semester time.

  1. Programming (with music programming sub group)
  2. Station Marketing and Promotion (with special event planning sub group)

The programming sub-committee will work closely with the Station Manager and oversee:


  • On-going review of content and station schedule
  • Development of new programming
  • Listener feedback, and identifying possible gaps in output
