The radio show, titled “From His Home to Yours”, will be on air every Thursday evening at 7pm from August 20th.
‘The Boss’ will host a show which will be available to listeners across Ireland on Nova's FM and digital platforms.
Radio Nova broadcasts on FM to Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Wicklow, as well as nationally on the Nova App, the radio station's website and the Irish Radio Player.
“I'm am here to wish you well and to play you some songs that kind of work with the times that we’re living through,” said Springsteen.
“When we told listeners we were getting a new Boss I got a lot of worried calls and messages, so I’m happy to finally confirm this news today," said Radio Nova CEO, Kevin Branigan said.
"The signing of such a huge artist as Bruce Springsteen is a mind-blowing coup and comes as we approach our 10th anniversary on air. I wonder if our newest presenter might sing us ‘Happy Birthday’ on September 1st? We'll see!”
Colm Hayes, Radio Nova Programme Director and Breakfast Show Presenter, also expressed his delight at the major new offering.
“I am one of Bruce’s biggest fans. I’ve seen him so many times live and now I’m going to share a microphone with him. This is a career highlight no doubt!”
Upon making the announcement on “The Colm and Lucy Breakfast Show’”, Lucy Kennedy said, “I was slightly disappointed when I heard ‘The Boss’ was joining Radio Nova. I thought he was going to be my new co-host. “The Boss and Lucy Breakfast Show” has a nice ring to it. Welcome on-board Bruce!”
The Rock N Roll Hall Of Famer has chosen tracks from Roy Orbison, Don Henley, Bon Jovi, Morrissey and many more for his first show.
In later episodes Springsteen even dedicates a song to the U.S President Donald Trump by saying: “I’m going to start out by sending one to the man sitting behind the resolute desk. With all respect, sir, show some consideration and care for your countrymen and your country.”
He adds, “Put on a f***ing mask. This is Bob Dylan with ‘Disease of Conceit’.”
Catch Bruce Springsteen “From His Home to Yours”. Thursday nights at 7pm and Sunday mornings at 9am starting on August 20th on Radio Nova.
