The national broadcaster's programme revamp gathers apace!
Rick O'Shea has been talking about his move to 2fm's weekend schedule with the 11am-1pm The Rick O'Shea Show with Cormac Battle.
“Over the past 14 years, 2fm has become my home and I’m thrilled to be a big part of this new and exciting schedule," he enthuses. "The weekends are a brand new adventure for me and the guys and we very much look forward to disrupting your mornings with our usual brand of total nonsense. For all the shows listeners, we’re moving shop around the corner and the sign over the door will remain the same. See you on the other side!”
Also returning to Radio 1 on October 17 with another series of The Poetry Show, Rick was one of the panelists last night as the Hop Press Talks kicked off in the RDS.
“I have been a huge fan of Rick O’Shea’s since he presented on Atlantic 252 and I’m delighted Rick is bringing his brand of fan to a weekend audience," says station chief Dan Healy. "2fm has been increasing its audience at the weekend and Rick will definitely help accelerate that. Being a leader in the social media field and with his broadcasting prowess, I know that there’s a huge opportunity to grow 25-34 audience in the market.”
