Today FM’s early show presenter Louise Duffy will take over the daytime slot due to be left vacant by KC in April.
Louise has been on the station full time for the last three years and hosts the 5am till 7am weekday slot. KC announced last month he’s leaving to join Red FM in Cork, which prompted Paddy Power to run odds on who will takeover the show. Louise was one of the top five favourites.
“I am delighted to take over the lunchtime show on Today FM,” Louise said. “It’s a marvellous opportunity, and one which I’m so grateful for. I love being part of the Today FM team. It’s a great place to work, and after three years on early breakfast, I’m so excited about this new challenge and can’t wait to getting started!”
The station said: “Louise Duffy has been a tremendous presenter on Today FM since she joined the full-time on air team three years ago. Louise has a growing fan base because of her natural, warm and engaging personality. She has honed her broadcasting chops in a very difficult part of the day, where in the last year alone, she has grown the base by over 40%.
“Louise is no stranger to primetime, having covered in the afternoons and added a new dimension to Today FM’s Summer Saturday’s last year.. as well as being an integral part of the Breakfast Show team each weekday morning.”
