Where's BBC Radio Ulster's local news?

Last Saturday morning, the stories on BBC Radio Ulster were about North Korea, Afghanistan, suspicious deaths in Yorkshire, Kelvin McKenzie and a story about clowns. There were no local stories.

On Sunday morning, the stories were about North Korea, the Turkish presidential referendum and the Easter messages from Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Again, there were no local stories.

And on Sunday evening, the stories were again about North Korea, the Turkish presidential referendum, the Lloyds Banking Group and the death of actor Clifford James. Again, no local stories.

Surely, there must have been a story of some sort from here that they could have reported? Or do BBC Radio Ulster no longer report local stories?
