We’re delighted to announce we’re teaming up with Pundit Arena to bring you even better sports coverage across the West, Northwest, Northeast and Midlands.
Our weekend sports show, iScore, is front and centre of this partnership. You can catch iScore very Saturday and Sunday on iRadio from 4pm to 6pm. iScore delivers coverage and analysis of the biggest sports stories, as well as an in-depth look behind the headlines.
Every weekend, iScore presenter Caradh O’Donovan keeps listeners up to date with the day’s fixtures. She chats to a mix of sporting stars and gets expert opinion and insight from a host of Pundit Arena’s top journalists.
Caradh is a former world, European and national champion kickboxer, and now a Team Ireland karate star with a mission to compete in the next Olympics. She’s a passionate advocate for athletes’ rights and a founding member of Global Athlete.
Speaking about the partnership, Caradh says:
“I’m really excited about this partnership!  Bringing together expertise from both iRadio and Pundit Arena will give listeners a fresh take on sport.  I’m delighted that we have this opportunity to create something new for the Irish sports fan.”

“In 2020 we launched iRadio’s iScore presented by Irish Karate star and Sligo native Caradh O’Donovan which has gone down a storm.  We’ve big plans with the team at Pundit Arena and I’m confident this is the start of something big for both brands.”

Pundit Arena already platforms aspiring journalists and articulate fans to an audience of more than 1,400,000 unique readers each month.
