I'd have to hear it to make a judgement but frankly such are the finances of Newstalk I'd not be surprised.
NewsTalk have laid off 34 people in past few months, 35 if the reports on Ger Gilroys future are true.
I'd say you could get them to do anything with
Anyone else listen to Kim Kommando over in Ireland?
Has any official announcement been made on this yet?
About Ger Gilroy? No not yet.
sunday tribune had a thing on this gilroy thing today. they say an e mail was sent internally telling people not to speculate as it was hurtful to mr g.
if you think it was hurtful dont forget to text the breakfast show, texts cost 30 cents.
Here is the article in the Tribune -
Newstalk confirms Ger Gilroy is not being dropped
I wonder will Mr Yates be stepping in when Ger takes a few weeks off for his wedding and honeymoon? Or will they leave Claire with Conor Brophy - I would prefer to have Conor rather than Ivan Yates. And I would even more prefer to have Ger & Conor in the morning rather than Claire at all.
Keeping Ger on makes sense, he is one of their better presenters. It will be interesting to see what he ends up doing. A shake up of the schedule would do no harm.
Hopefully they'll axe Eamonn Keane from the lunchtime show and put Ger in instead. Of course, that'll never happen - bear with me on this
It would be "BREAKING NEWS" if that happened!
If Keane got sacked would we have to listen while he explains what a P45 is?
Because that would be worth it
"My apologies to the news team, I just felt that story about me being axed was too important to cut away from".
Anyone listen to the fella standing in for Eamonn Keane on Lunchtime? I think he's very good, he completely grilled Mary Wallace, twas very funny!
Its John Keogh that fills for him. He's very good.
