Great news for anyone interested in online radio with news that The Irish Times have extended their contract with the Second Captains lads.
Managing director of the Irish Times Liam Kavanagh said of the deal:
We are delighted to have the Second Captains team continue with The Irish Times. Readers have responded extremely positively to this new channel for Irish Times content, with 180,000-strong weekly audiences exceeding those of many well known commercial radio programmes.
Mark Hogan of Second Captains had this to say of the new contract
The response to The Irish Times Second Captains podcasts has been phenomenal. It has been great to be a part of an innovative new approach, and even better to see how our audience has grown, and we are delighted to be a part of The Irish Times team.
Special congratulations to Ken Early from my mother who taught him in primary school and who in her words "was a very clever little boy".
