What was [email protected]?
[email protected] was the first local TV station in Ireland. Founded and produced by WLR, it broadcast for over five years. For those five years if it happened in Waterford - Waterford At 8 was there, covering everything from sport to theatre, and lifestyle features to social events.
Many of WLR's presenters at the time did regular features - including sport with Ray Scott, and Eddie Wymberry’s nostalgic visits to various different places in Waterford City and County. It gave a platform to showcase local community groups, sports teams and businesses in a new way that had never been seen before. Long before there was social media in Waterford, there was Waterford At 8.
When did it [email protected] air?
New episodes aired every Thursday night at 8pm on local TV providers Cablelink.
