Dan Hegarty becomes the latest ex-Phantom DJ (following Cormac Battle and Jenny Huston) to be brought on board at 2FM
2FM's plundering of Phantom FM's staff continues with Dan Hegarty being brought in to present the Sunday night/Monday morning album show which airs from 12 to 2am.
A Dun Laoghaire College of Art & Design Radio Broadcasting graduate, Hegarty says: "I'm absolutely delighted about joining 2FM. It's a big challenge but one I can't wait to get stuck into. The Album Show is going to bridge the gap between Liz Phair, Sly Stone and Rollerskate Skinny – just like late night radio should do!"
Adds programme producer John McMahon: "We've been aware of Dan for a while now. He's a good broadcaster, genuinely interested in new music and a nice fella to boot. I'm confident he'll be every bit as successful as Cormac and Jenny who both sound like they've been on the station for a year now."
Hegarty replaces Jay Ahern who's leaving the station to concentrate on his work with Vital Distribution (Ireland).
