Hunter's Midweek Media Round Up

Our pick of media and industry related stories, making the digital headlines this week! TXFM to close Music lovers were in shock yesterday with the announcement that alternative radio station TXFM - which celebrates it's second birthday today -had not re-applied to renew it's license.   This makes us sad,  not just for the resulting job losses and the impact on Irish music scene but the closure will also mean there's a severe lack of choice when it comes to music on the radio. The  station  is expected to continue broadcasting until October.   Snapchat 2.0 is here!  Big news for Snapchat users, in just four years Snapchat has gained 100 million users and a huge amount of daily engagement with its video content and now it's introducing live video and audio calls - which means it will now challenge WhatsApp and Messenger as proper, bone fide communications tool!     KLM announce Facebook partnership    Speaking of Messenger- they've upped the ante and are set to become more than just a chat app.  KLM the Dutch Airline have just announced that they'll be the first airline to use the App to send passengers their Boarding Passes and other flight info. No more paper-jamming printers yay!!   New Suspects?  The lawyer attempting to overturn the murder conviction of Steven Avery, the subject of Netflix documentary sensation "Making a Murderer"  has revealed there could be a huge twist to come in the case.
