Mark Robinson – Image Producer Newstalk 106 Dublin; Crikey, this pack of drongos are a kangaroo short in the top paddock and thought a Shitzu was a zoo with no animals… Strike me pink, Dealing with them made as crook as a drover’s dog… But seriously folks… IQ Beats have been exceptional to deal with. NewsTalk 106-108 is unique in Ireland in that it is a talk station that targets a much younger audience than traditional stations in this format, and as such creating a complimenting image with music beds, news themes etc is critical in maintaining the correct environment in which to satisfy our existing audience but also appeal to the new national audience. Most importantly they worked to our agenda and deadlines, (as we were counting down to the national broadcast launch), designing exactly what we needed to integrate with the existing sound of the station, reflecting the station’s image and maximizing the appeal to our core target, rather than trying to fit the station into an existing package. Everyone from the Board of Directors to the listeners have reacted very positively to the new innovative package which has been another key element of making NewsTalk 106-108 Ireland’s most innovative talk station.
