U105 announce breakfast duo

Ivan Martin and Richard Young, one of radio?s most dynamic breakfast duos ever, are set to make a comeback on UTV?s exciting new radio station, U105, on the recently confirmed frequency of 105.8FM.

From Monday 14th November at 6.00am, Ivan and Richard will present the 105 Breakfast, a three hour weekday breakfast show with a mixture of music, news, the talking points of the day, traffic and travel information, sport, business, what’s on and a review of the papers.

John Rosborough, Managing Director, U105 said: ?For many people Ivan and Richard were absolutely synonymous with breakfast time. They?ve enjoyed a well deserved lie in for the last seven years and now they?re ready to come back, better than ever before, to send U105 listeners out to face the day well informed with a smile on their faces.?

Ivan Martin said; “I am excited by the prospect of being in at the start of something new with U105. I feel that it fills a big gap in the market and I am also delighted to be working with Richard again. We never took ourselves too seriously before and that will not have changed.

“We are looking forward to reacquainting ourselves with the audience again. This time around, with the advent of e-mail and texts, we will have greater and more immediate access to them. That promises to be good craic.”

Richard Young said: ?I?m really looking forward to the new show and can promise listeners radio for grown-ups! I can honestly say Ivan?s one of the few people who doesn?t make me grumpy at 6.00am, and that?s quite a feat! But then, as he says, we have never taken ourselves very seriously, and that helps when you?re trying to prise your eyelids open. Mind you, getting up at ?early o?clock? again every morning will probably come as a bit of a shock at first.?

U105 is aimed primarily at listeners aged 45 plus and will broadcast to Belfast and the surrounding area on 105.8FM from Monday 14th November.
