Former 98FM and Today FM presenter Ray Foley is joining Jason Coughlan as the new co-presenter of Breakfast on Cork’s Red FM.
Ray replaces KC who left to join cross-town rival 96FM to host the breakfast show.
“Breakfast with Ray & Jay” was announced at a special celebration event with Irish Rugby legend Ronan O’Gara and Cork Music Artists Brian Deady and Stephanie Rainey to mark the 3rd anniversary of Cork’s Red FM relaunch.
Speaking at the announcement Ray Foley said: “I’m really excited about moving to Cork to present on Red FM which is one of the best radio stations in the country and I think I will have a lot of fun presenting alongside Jay who is a very funny guy.”
Ray Foley already hosts his own show on the station every Saturday morning since June of last year. Ray, who presents the Seven O’Clock Show on Friday nights on TV3, is also known for his self-titled lunchtime show on Today FM for six years and also the Irish version of Take Me Out on TV3.
Ray Foley will be joining Cork Comedian Jason Coughlan who has been a breakfast presenter on Red FM for the last seven years. “To be honest Ray was my third choice but we will be grand”, joked Jason.
“Already myself and Ray are getting on fantastic, we are both Dads with young kids so will have a lot to talk about including my goldfish which has been reincarnated 15 times” added Jason Coughlan. Fiona O’Donovan will be on News and Lisa Lawlor & Ruairi O’Hagan are on sport for the new show.
“Breakfast with Ray & Jay” will be on weekdays from 6am to 9am beginning on Monday April 3rd on Cork’s Red FM. To start of their new show the guys will be giving one person a chance to win a meet & greet with Ed Sheeran at the 3 arena in Dublin.
