Back? When did he work there? He left Today FM in 1999 to take up the position at tv three.


He left RTE around the start of 1990. He was one of the better presenters on RTE Radio 2 during the eighties. he was very much present on TV3 in the first ten years it was on air as it was his voice that announced the start of the News at 5.30 and 11.00

Would Virgin Media want to keep him with their channel, as he has become the face of what was TV3 and now Virgin Media Television in Ireland?

If he was not up to presenting early mornings, maybe he could take over from Martin King on The Six O'Clock Show?

RTÉ have collaborated with the Houses of the Oireachtas to have a Climate Action Youth Parliament sitting in Dáil Eireann. 157 students from around the country will be selected via an online lottery system on the RTÉ youth parliament website. The applications for taking part in the youth parliament have opened today & it will remain open for 7 weeks. RTÉ have also announced that they will plan to produce new programmes to address Climate Action in Ireland which I assume will be included in it's upcoming Autumn schedule.

Ireland AM had some technical issues before starting this morning, meaning the opening of the show was pushed back to 7:54. Virgin Media One showed a repeat of Peter Andre's 60 Minute Makeover until the technical issues were sorted with a banner at the bottom saying "We apologise for the change to our schedule. We will return to normal programming as soon as possible."

The show began at 7:54 with a TOTH where the presenters went as usual and talked about what was coming up on the show before going to an ad break. When they came back from the ad break they did another TOTH.

The Virgin Media News Hub wasnt used this morning. The news headlines came from the studio where Geraldine Lynagh presented from the desk opposite the kitchen area.

I doubt almost anyone noticed, Audience figures before 8am for Virgin Media One would be in the thousands at best. Looking at latest TAM ratings that's the case for a good part of the broadcast day.

Is morning television really that bad in Ireland in terms of ratings?

You have to remember though that there isn’t as much people in Ireland as there are in the UK.
The population of Ireland is only 4-5 million while the UK’s population I believe is something like 65-70 million.
While Breakfast and GMB could pull up to 1m people every morning, Ireland AM could only pull a few thousands.

It's a fair point but it's terrible TV by Virgin Media One and only on air to boost Irish produced TV on the Station. ITV's This Morning is also Shown By Virgin Media One and last week it had 2 places in it's Top Twenty! (74,000 people over 15 watching) In fact last week it didn't have one home-produced programme (excluding news) in it's top twenty, they were all ITV shows.
