The various reports and rumours surrounding presenters at Newstalk could keep me going for a week at this stage.
I had written about Claire Byrne’s move from the Breakfast show to RTE, of the promotion of reporter, Chris O’Donoghue to fill her shoes and the arrival of Dragons Den investor, Gavin Duffy to take over the lunchtime show after Eamon Keane abandoned ship some months ago.
The latest rumour in the mill is that Tom Dunne is to move from Newstalk to take over on the 2fm Breakfast show.
Last night Jim-Jim Nugent, 2FM presenter of ‘Colm and Jim-Jim’ fame, quit 2FM in advance of a station shake up. Sile Seoige is currently filling in from Tom Dunne on Newstalk and is doing a fairly good job of it too.
So is Newstalk set to lose another of it’s big-name presenters?
