IRN

   Independent Radio News, a twenty-four-hour national and international news service, began broadcasting (first on LBC) when commercial radio was officially sanctioned in Britain in 1973. It was at first funded by the radio stations themselves, to whom information was transmitted by landline or teleprinter. Computer technology was installed in 1985, advertising became the source of funding in 1987, and distribution was changed to satellite in 1989. Unlike any other news broadcast organization in the world, IRN now pays its clients to take its services, giving it a market share and influence which is unrivalled in the UK.
