Centra launches ‘good news’ channel for recession-weary Irish

22 Jun 2009

An Irish retail chain will today launch a ‘good news only’ channel on YouTube for recession-weary shoppers.

The Centra Good News Network will broadcast twice weekly for four weeks on Mondays and Thursdays on YouTube.

Bulletins will feature three minutes of entertaining good news stories from around Ireland.

The channel, which debuts today, will be presented by Kathy Milliken and Dermot Hickey, and will focus on stories from former Manchester United striker Christiano Ronaldo’s much-anticipated appearance in Tallaght to Ireland’s latest dating craze, naked ambition in Kerry and Limerick’s most successful dog.
