Bobby Kerr Businessman on Newstalk.

How can a successful businessman go through life mispronouncing one of the biggest auditors in the world.
His add for "Earnest" and Young is just bad.

Some people have way too much to complain about.

Also why do people call Goodbody Stockbrokers, 'GoodBUDDY Stockbrokers'?

I would forgive Mr. Kerr given that his background is business and not broadcasting. Also, Newstalk is privately owned and so they can hire who they like, pretty much.

I have a serious problem with the many MANY broadcasters on the state funded RTE who have a brutal grasp of basic grammar and pronunciation though.

It can't be that hard to get people who can speak properly can it?

How can some people go through life not knowing how to spell "ad" correctly?

Oh well, never mind. Better luck next time, OP.

And yes - Kerr is AWFUL on the radio.

Earnest and Young wouldn't have let Anglo slip so much by them.

Bobby Kerr should do less broadcasting and make fresher sandwiches

His voice bugs the piss out of me, have to switch it over whenever he's on. Of course Newstalk do have Marc Coleman, author of The Best is Yet to Come as their Head of Business or whatever title he's carrying.

This book, published late 2007, tells us all how, far from the bubble bursting, we are actually on the cusp of a Golden Age that could last 30 years or more!!
