GOCOM Radio is a social enterprise that creates, produces, and broadcasts culturally competent content to serve ethnic minorities and marginalised listeners; focusing on positive profiling, showcasing migrant skills, disseminating all-inclusive information and multilingualism.
We engage with youth to amplify their voices; address young people’s needs, perspectives, experiences, and interests.
We work with diverse groups to promote their culture, values, beliefs, and interests; and bridge gaps.
We commenced broadcast with indigenous music on January 1, 2021, and began operations on 19th August 2021; following official opening by Her Worship, Lord Mayor of Galway Colette Connolly.
We broadcast Monday to Friday, 10 am to 7pm and play indigenous music from 7pm to 10am.
Our programming includes current affairs (mainly local issues but including national issues that have a local impact), news, diversity, inclusion, migration, arts, women issues, local historical interests, law, health, children and family, drama, and podcast.
We also provide live coverage of special events from time to time. We provide free announcement slots for births, deaths, marriages, non-profit events, meetings and AGMs.
Success for me is seeing the way we tell stories change the way we see and understand each other.Islammiyah Saudique-Kadejo, CEO GOCOM Radio
