Coimisiún na Meán said it was ‘not appropriate’ for individuals running for election to present radio programmes

Niall Boylan, the talkshow host, is running as an Independent Ireland candidate in Dublin for the European elections

Coimisiún na Meán has contacted Classic Hits FM to raise concerns about Niall Boylan continuing to present his radio show after registering as a candidate in the European elections.

Classic Hits FM is to make an on-air statement on Boylan’s candidacy and his future role at the station this evening at 9pm.

Coimisiún na Meán, the broadcast and online regulator, was responding to queries from the Business Post after Boylan, the radio broadcaster, registered as a candidate in the European elections this June.
