Eoghan McDermott joins RTÉ 2fm Ireland

Former Xfm drivetime presenter Eoghan McDermott is joining RTÉ 2fm for a new weekend breakfast show in Dublin.

His new show is part of a summer schedule announced today at 2fm’s Donnybrook HQ in front of a specially invited media guest-list.

Eoghan is best-known in Ireland as Kathryn Thomas’s co-host on RTÉ One’s The Voice of Ireland while also presenting Xfm Drivetime in London.

Head of 2fm Dan Healy said: “We’re going to be broadcasting live from some of Ireland’s most electrifying music, comedy and sports festivals this summer: Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions, Castlepalooza, the Vodafone Comedy Festival and the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series to name but a few. We’re excited about what’s ahead and we wanted to hold this event today to kick it off in style and bring everyone along for the ride with us… just like we’ll be doing on-air all summer long.”

Speaking at today’s launch, Eoghan McDermott said: “I had an amazing two years on UK radio finding and backing new music, where we picked up a nomination for best new UK radio show for our troubles – now it’s time to champion some of the great Irish talent on the legendary 2fm. A massive station where some of the greats have resided and right now a bit of an underdog. Exciting times.”

2fm has been making changes since earlier this year with schedule shake-ups and new shows such as Breakfast Republic, The Nicky Byrne Show, The Louise McSharry Show, Chris & Ciara, Early, Early Breakfast with Lottie Ryan and now, Eoghan McDermott’s weekend breakfast show being added to the bill.
