Sunshine takes a shine to former 2fm host

Joe Harrington, Sunshine 106.8 Station Manager has high hopes for axed 2fm presenter Lucy Kennedy after her appearance last week.

Lucy was covering a Saturday show for Andrea Hayes and made a good impression with Joe.

He told the Herald: “I don’t think 2fm fulfilled Lucy’s potential, but she had a clean start with us and did brilliantly.

“The difference between RTE and us is that we operate format radio, where the music is already selected for each presenter, but where they have to know the music and be sharper.”

Lucy left 2fm along with co-host Baz Ashmawy after the station tried to reduce the cost-base early last year.

Joe continued: “Lucy is warm, bright intelligent and definitely connected with our listeners.

“Our regular presenter Andrea will be back in her slot next week, but we have definite plans for Lucy.”
