Tipp FM – Mission Statement
Tipp FM is committed to providing a local radio service which entertains, informs and inspires the people of Tipperary.
Local radio stations all over the country have adopted many approaches to their still relatively new role. The approach of Tipp FM, right from the beginning, has been to celebrate what is local, in every way, every day.
Every programme, every day, and every presenter, has a specific local-service brief, right from the Breakfast Show to late night listening. The flagship Tipp Today programme deals intensively with local issues with our local news-team tackling all the major issues which occur in the county and further afield. Regular Outside Broadcasts reinforce county coverage. Coverage of all sports is unrivaled.
Current & Future Programming
Future projects and programme ideas in the pipeline are manifold and exciting. All, however, have to meet the fundamental policy requirement of serving Tipp FM’s loyal listenership even more stimulatingly than at present.
Most elements of the Tipp FM broadcasting policy were expressed at a staff seminar in a few simple, yet aptly witty, sentences: “We have always known whose cattle were grazing the ‘long acre’ this morning, where the best music session was last night, who will be running for the County Council next time out. And we always need to be as tightly tuned into the local scene as that”. And we always will be.
