yes there is hence the closure of the megathread. If someone wants to discuss a particular show on Newstalk they can start a thread.

Ivan on the meaning of NIMBY: "not in my back door" apparently.

Chris' response was pretty great: "People of Ireland, rise up and say... NOT IN MY BACK DOOR!"

Thought the presenter from Global Village who is having a baby with her lesbian partner spoke very well this morning. Kicked out of the house at 17 after she told her Jehovah's Witness parents she was gay, mother asks her recently 'Are you normal yet?'. Mind boggles

Recent JNLR data rated Breakfast the most popular Newstalk show. Pretty impressive going, especially after it looked like the wheels were coming off during the Nora months.

Together with PK and Hook (to be replaced in due course by Shane Coleman?), Newstalk looks like a really serious proposition now. Breakfast has really settled, and Ivan and Chris have got the banter balance right, after the dodgy pre-Nora effort.

Not surprising so that she has such a chirpy disposition, getting away from that pair of eejits. Fair play to her...Her name is not difficult to pronounce though. Apart from the bashing mentioned above, she goes on about this a lot!!!

yeah i heard it was a good filleting. got the feeling yates has no time for bobby

Also what is the point of the business show before breakfast? its a waste of a filler slot. theres about 15 minutes of an actual show. at 750 this morning bobby says he off for a traffic report which turns into an ad break he comes back and says thats it from me now lets take the traffic. Ian Guider use to do the same

Has Ian Guider left Newstalk?
Heard him last Friday morning saying it was his last Business Breakfast show.
There is now no business reporter on during the Newstalk Breakfast, which is a weakness if left like that.
I liked that early business show from 6:30 and thought Guider was very good on it. A good business journalist if not the best broadcaster in the world.

It sure beats Shay Byrne playing with himself over on Radio One.

Also, I enjoyed Bobby Kerr becoming precious and defensive with Yeats over his role in this Post Office Talking Shop that he's chairman of, this morning.

When Yeats suggested that maybe selling Mars Bars might be the only way to save rural Post Offices, Kerr didn't like it much, calling for a bit of respect.
Yeats then reminded Kerr that he was a rural TD for 20 years and so the dick measuring continued. Enjoyable.

Yeats really is a breath of fresh air on irish radio, he doesn't care who he talks about and what he says about them.

Listening to Hook climb up Aer Lingus arse the other evens just showed the difference.

That was enjoyable but for the most part his smart-alecky, contrary-for-the-sake-of-it routine just makes me tired.

Since Chris O'Donohoe got the gig with UTV he seems to be really ratcheting it up. Maybe he's trying to raise his profile and become a sort of Jeremy Clarkson-type hate figure.

Newstalk Breakfast is still better than most of the alternatives. I still listen. I'm half expecting Yeats to eventually push it too far with some extraordinary bad-taste joke that sees him adding "broadcaster" to his list of failed careers.

Yeah he knows his stuff, but didn't have the best of voices for radio.

He's coming close alright, this mornings offering was some kind of smug put down on eastern European cleaners and how Shane has one running around cleaning up after his mess in the house.

While I'm no big fan of Ivan as a person, he's very entertaining on radio and he does say what he wants, puts it up to waffling politicians always and doesn't suffer fools easily. It is also just a nice break from listening to Chris Donoghue's boring populist claptrap.

I don't agree at all with you saying he has a list of failed careers. People rarely exit politics in a whirlwind of glory, if ever, and considering the difficulties he faced as minister of Ag. with BSE crisis he did quite well, he was actually tipped to take over the party but bowed out of politics altogether...I would say that's as successful a politician he could have been and exited on a high. His Celtic bookmaker business was very successful until the downturn and its downfall was not related to his ineptitude as a businessman, he also did his best to keep the business afloat and keep his employees in work. The business failed, but it wasn't necessary a failed career of his. I should emphasise, I do think hes a bit of a b*llocks though, definitely not someone you would want as a husband or dad.
