Maybe McWilliams or the rumoured snagging of Marian Finuncane will get the early morning shift?
I wouldn't say McWilliams would go back to Newstalk after what happened - he wasn't exactly treated royally.
Personally I think Richard Aldous has been doing a fantastic job - I found myself tuning in to the show far more regularly since Dunphy has been on holidays / on the piss abusing the Taoiseach.
I'm sue he isn't high profile enough to be Dunphy's replacement though, they'll need a big name when going national. And I'd say his being English might also be a factor - you'd be surprised how badly a presenter with an english accent would go down in various parts of the country.
Anyway, good riddens to Dunphy!!
