What was Waterford At 8?
It 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 Waterford At 8 air?
New episodes aired every Thursday night at 8pm on local TV providers Cablelink.
