Broadcasting Diversity explores modes of migrant representation and participation in Irish radio, focusing on the national public broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann and Dublin community stations and examining the opportunities provided for voicing migrant experience in transcultural program production. Investigating the intersection between an established Irish culture on the one hand and the nascent emergence of a transnational culture on the other, this book focuses on the ways in which migrant representation and self-representation have been variously effected in the Irish public sphere via the medium of radio.

"Moylan explores modes of migrant representation and participation, focusing on the Irish national public broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann and Dublin community stations, examining the opportunities provided for voicing migrant experience in transcultural program production. The study is largely descriptive, reporting what has been broadcast and some of the barriers (or at least obstacles) to programming such content."
