Brenda Power replaced on Newstalk

August 21st, 2008 · 9 Comments · MSM, Newstalk

HSE officials and government press secretaries were probably cheering yesterday. Brenda is being replaced as a morning anchor on Newstalk by rockstud and calm voiced Tom Dunne. (Take a Parachute is one of my all time favourite songs.)

The Irish Times reports that Brenda is looking forward to getting back into ‘scripted radio?’ Is that reading out her Sunday Times columns on air? Yyyyyyyyyyawn. At least the unscripted closeted anti dyke stuff will cease.

I’m going to miss Orla Barry though – especially the weekly film/gossip bit she did with a Alan Silverman from California and also her interest in things bloggy/social media.

All change in morning radio – now if only someone would move Gerry aside for Rick and the radio listening world would be a much happier place.
