John McMahon joins Sean O’Rourke on One

Former head of 2fm John McMahon is joining the team on Radio One’s new mid-morning show with Sean O’Rourke.

John left his Head of 2fm position earlier this year when his contract ended to oversee the introduction of a multi-channel audio production project to centralise station sound and imaging on RTÉ Radio’s four fm and six digital radio stations.

During his time as Station Head, RTÉ 2fm saw a number of new high profile presenters, including Hector O’Eochagáin and Ryan Tubridy, as well as new talent such as Paddy McKenna and Cormac Battle.

On the mid-morning show he’ll provide a lifestyle element to help lighten the tone, the Independent reports.

It’s just a week off a new national mid-morning battle as Sean O’Rourke starts on Radio One and Pat Kenny starts his new show on Newstalk.
