even though I never listen to either station, that's a bit of a shocker if true.

DJs have been bringing their shows personalities and formats to other stations since the dawn of time, do you think Ian Dempsey changed his style when he moved to Radio Ireland.

Well if you can't 'create/invent' then poach comes to mind..

First they ripped off Today FMs Gift Grub now they poach a complete show/format staff.
Good to see our license fee isn't being wasted on the RTE creative department.

Sorry but as someone who in the past listened to the Strawberry Alarm clock
I will not be migrating to 2fm. The RTE playlists and listening to how milking
time in Sligo or such like is causing traffic tailbacks in the bog just ain't my cuppa.

To be blunt, 2fm know they are losing market share hand over fist
and this is a half-ar$ed attempt and nothing more than a quick fix.
Nothing but a complete restructure is required.

agree'd. strawberry is the only thing they had going IMO. though having said that, adrian kennedy still rakes in the ratings. if someone bought him up fm104 may as well sell their license

He's probably gone to RTE Lyric

Must agree with comment above about 104. A bad start to the year for them. Losing there most listened to show(over 100,000 every morning in Dublin). Dilema with talk show host at the end of last year (charged with Drink Driving Offence and being 3 times over limit)... and Declan Pierce jumping ship also.. Things looking very dark at Hume House in the short term but knowing the people behind the scenes they'll come out fighting to retain the number 1 slot in Dublin.
Andy Matthews takes temporary charge of the breakfast show on 104. I wonder if Joan Lee will return to where she should never have left, breakfast..


On the other hand its a huge gain for 2fm. If they (Colm & Jim) could bring that Dublin market to 2fm's door once again. I don't care if you love them or hate them, They DO have a following and they ARE good at the job. The nation needs an alternative to Gift Grub

But will they be able to appeal to the market beyond the M50?

As for Will Leahy. Interesting move. I do fear that he will be RTE's latest rising star though and will suffer from over-exposure.

2FM has been long gone from my car radio pre-sets and this schedule change does nothing to influence me to re-instate it anytime soon.

I am now taking bets on how long it will be before they shuffle the schedule again.
