Any update on his future after Jenny Greene takes over the 10 till Midnight show next Monday? There is no mention of him in the schedule after next Sunday night. Are 2fm dispensing with his services?
He will probably remain with RTE 2XM..he is RTE permanent staff.
It is a shame. This will be the first time there will be no rock/indie show on the 2FM schedule since the early days. Cormac Battle does have a show on Fri nights/Sat mornings but that has a mix of everything not just rock/indie.
Then that would be a scandals waste of money since 2xm only ever has about 7 listeners online
Well 2fm have now at the last minute revised the evening schedule and shoehorned DH into an hour long slot from 11 to Midnight. God only knows what was happening behind the scenes to result in this last minute decision
Odd. Would they not make it two hours 11-1? Didn't he do that before?
Because they want to keep the robojock playing the daytime playlist at midnight
I wonder was Dan Healy hoping that some other department in RTE would take Dan Hegarty on but to no avail ? It's very unusual that they spent the last few weeks telling us that Jenny Greenes new show would be starting on the 21 of Feb from 10 till midnight but late on the Friday before they suddenly announce that Jenny will now be 9 to 11 followed by Dan Hegarty from 11 till midnight.
so what was the original plan - game on for 2 hours 6 - 8?
The hour reduction in his show makes no sense, and it's probably detrimental to Irish musicians that don't fit into the flash in a pan pop model as their airtime, across the Irish radio spectrum, takes another hit.
just very strange how they dont have Dan on 11 pm to 1 am ...he had that slot before!!
To be fair, they have been using the Midnight to 2 slot on & off to give new presenters a dry run, yerman Beta De slivia was one for a week or two before taking over weekend breakfast.
How often did this happen? Not very often??
If it did happen, could they not put new guys on from 1 am to 3 am?
