The broadcaster relocated to New York City last year.
Dublin broadcaster Dara Quilty has been cast as the voice over host of MTV’s brand new celebrity game show, Stan vs Stan. The series will see super-fans of celebrities compete against each other, in order to prove they are the "ultimate stan."
Since hosting his final ‘Big Ride Home’ on 98FM and moving his life to New York City at the end of 2019, the multi-award winning broadcaster has also launched his smash hit podcast Dara Quilty’s Different – and has landed an impressive three gigs on MTV.
Dara Quilty started his MTV journey appearing alongside international celebrities such as Ed Sheeran, Machine Gun Kelly and Zara Larsson on the successful digital series 99 People. He went on to secure the role of comedic voice over host of MTV’s May The Best Twin Win - a dating game show which has racked up over two million views.
"The first thing I did when I moved to New York was build a home studio... not under the impression I was building a bunker!" Dara reveals in a statement. "I am so lucky that I can continue my work with MTV as everything moves to almost entirely remote production. I am very excited about what's to come, ViacomCBS have so many networks!"
In Ireland, Dara Quilty first rose to prominence back in 2008 at SPIN 1038 – before moving on to 98FM. Throughout his tenure on Irish radio, he was a consistent winner of PPI / IMRO Radio Awards – coming out on top on numerous occasions in both the Music & Entertainment Broadcaster of the Year and Music Programme of the Year categories.
