Meet the new team
My name is Rebecca O’ Sullivan and I’m the Wired FM studio executive for the coming academic year. I’ve been an active volunteer with the station for the past two years. During 2015/16 I was part of the current affairs show ‘Wired In’, which won a Craol award. I’m also hugely interested in up and coming Irish bands. Feel free to stop and chat to me anytime, I’m here to help! If you want to get involved in the station in anyway possible or even wish to highlight a topic you think we should cover, contact me anytime!
This year I’m one of Wired FM’s Studio Executives. I’ve been a volunteer at Wired FM since I was a first year, back in 2014. Over the years I’ve presented Morning Mayhem and The Final Whistle, and I won the awards for Unsung Hero and Best Overall Production at the Wired FM awards last year. I hope that this year I can help to bring Wired FM to greater heights, especially this year as we are celebrating our 21st birthday party!
For the next twelve weeks or so I will be working as a Studio Executive with Wired FM. In this role I’m hopeful plenty of new recruits will come on board with the station and for some dip their toes in the radio world for the first time. A personal aim of mine is to make the environment at Wired as creative and welcoming as possible. Getting involved with Wired furthered my expertise in the radio world and gave me the freedom to develop a show and progress it over the course of a year which was voted the Best Specialist Talk-Show of the station in 2016. Along with Wired I am involved in the local media scene in Clare and am looking forward to bringing the same commitment to the station. If you think you would like to go down a similar path, then Wired FM is a must-stop on that journey. Our door is always open!
