Country is ‘King’ and Classic Hits Country is precisely that!  Chris lets the music do the talking with a mix of American and Irish country music you won’t hear anywhere else on the radio dial at this time.


For lovers of Country music this is one show not to be missed with the latest releases, timeless country classics and songs from the cream of country music both in Ireland and America making this 90-minute daily edition an important part of the day.Chris Carroll has been an integral part of Midwest Radio since the station went on air in 1989 and can best be described as a genuine Connacht man – he was born in County Roscommon, lives in County Galway and works in County Mayo!


Along with Paul Claffey – Midwest Radio’s M.D. – Chris set about setting up a radio station that has developed into one of the most successful media outlets in Ireland over the past two decades. He has a keen interest in music so radio was always going to be a natural progression for Chris who is married to Martina and has three daughters namely Jennifer, Rebekah and Rachael, and a son, Sol. 

Whilst the radio industry has changed dramatically over the years Chris still places huge emphasis on steering a company that has its listeners interests and views at heart whilst also offering advertisers a product that they know is highly popular.  “Local radio generally is a balancing act between being able to offer the sort of service we know people want whilst having the courage and ability to put programmes on our schedule that question and challenge. We’ve always tried to do that and the fact that we have been consistently popular both in Mayo and surrounding counties speaks for itself.”

In January 2010 Chris took over the role of Sales Manager to ensure the continued success of the station in what are difficult times within the industry.  With the highest market share of any radio station in Connacht advertisers are assured of positive results from marketing their products on Midwest Radio and Chris is leading our sales department in continuing to offer the most effective medium of advertising in the West of Ireland. He is happy to incorporate this role along with his hugely popular, daily Classic Hits Country Show.
