About the show…

KCLR Live is a fast paced two-hour talk show with live callers and in-studio guests. We are an interactive show that is listener-driven—we respond to your texts, calls, emails and letters and follow-up on air. We champion the ordinary people in Carlow-Kilkenny. We ask tough questions and challenge the authorities but we also enjoy light-hearted banter with “friends of the show”.

Round-the-clock…

While the show airs weekdays from 10am to 12noon, the buzz never stops here at KCLR Live. We tweet, Facebook and talk to our listeners to source content 24/7.

Who are we…

John Masterson is “anchorman” here at KCLR Live. He’s a columnist and travel writer for the Sunday Independent and a former RTE television producer. He has a Ph. D in Psychology from Trinity College, Dublin. While at RTE, John produced programmes across the schedule from Today Tonight to the Late Late Show and worked with leading presenters and artists including Gay Byrne, Brendan O’Carroll, Ryan Tubridy and Ray D’Arcy. John has published two books Facing Up To AIDS with John Mordaunt (O’Brien Press, 1989), and Working It Out (Mercier Press, 2004). In his first, and probably last, role on the big screen John plays the part of Mack in Mrs Brown, D’Movie released in June 2014. John is a Harley enthusiast and enjoys his coffee early in the mornings!

Eimear Ní Bhraonáin is the producer of KCLR Live. A former midlands and south-east correspondent for the Irish Independent, and local newspaper editor, she has covered many front page stories in the past ten years. In 2011, Eimear moved to Moneygall to await the arrival of US President Barack Obama. She reported on the visit of President Obama for networks across the globe as a “villager”. Eimear published “Is Féidir Linn—A Golden Ticket to Moneygall’ documenting Mr Obama’s visit with First Lady Michelle on July 4, 2011. A gaeilgeoir, Eimear is also a regular contributor to documentaries on TG4 and RTE and to various shows on RTE Raidió na Gaeltachta.

The team…

The best part of local radio is our small, hard-working team. No KCLR Live is complete without our regular news and sports updates from our team.
