WLR FM or “WLR” (Waterford Local Radio), licensed since 1989 (WLR had previously been a pirate radio station) by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland, is the local radio station for Waterford City and County. In addition to the official franchise area, the station also enjoys a considerable listenership in South County Kilkenny and East County Cork.
WLR broadcasts on three frequencies: 95.1 MHz for most of the county (and a low-power transmitter also on 95.1 MHz for Waterford city centre), 97.5 MHz for Waterford city and much of East Waterford, and a low-power transmitter on 94.8 MHz to cover the East Waterford coast. On 10 October 2019 at the IMRO Radio Awards, WLR was named Ireland’s Local Station of the Year. On 1 September 2018 WLR launched a new Country and Irish digital station Absolute Irish Radio.
