It probably sounds ok when you are in that state

That accolade should go to George Hook, interrupting guests, spitting into the mike and going on and on about lovely Ingrid.
Hate presenters discussing their families on air, as if we gave a sh*t. Tom Dunne is another offender.

And pronounces the number 'six' as 'sex'....*shudders*

He's not even the worst on Newstalk. Nora Casey on their breakfast show manages to be ignorant, patronising and ill-informed all in the same breath. She's unlistenable.

Newstalk seems to be collecting together a sort of Avengers Ensemble of lousy speakers

Chris Donohue - ball bearings in a biscuit tin.
Nora Casey - giggle, hmm, yes, ahh
Hooky - rambling gargly noises
Moncreif - ah, eh, oo, hmm, mmm
Kerr - mumbleybumblystuff
Coleman - hack, krrrrr, cough, squlch

No fan of Nora but Bobby is on a different level especially on one of his outside broadcasts,all thats missing is the circus music in the background

I always get the impression Casey is playing footsy with Chris in the mornings. The flirting is vommit-inducing. She's fundamentally an airhead. Take away "business" and "woman" from her vocabulary and she has nothing to say

Montcrief is the best thing on radio. All verbal ticks forgiven.

Come back Ivan, all is forgiven.

Do you mean Joe Duffy? He's pretty shocking too.

While we're on the subject of mispronunciation, those 'Maraton Sports Travel' ad's annoy me more than they possibly should.

He's pretty bad, but the worst has to be the foreign lady who hosts a show on Newstalk either on a Saturday or Sunday evening. She's a terrible interviewer, misses links, leaves long pauses between links and is generally really amateurish when presenting.

Never heard anyone as bad on the radio.
