Cormac Battle gets weekly 2fm rock show

Rick O’Shea’s co-host Cormac Battle is to present his own weekly show on RTÉ 2fm as part of the re-vamped programme schedule.

The Cormac Battle Show starts tonight at 10pm playing rock, indie and dance music for two hours.

Cormac Battle has been part of the 2fm crew since 2004, before which he was a DJ on Phantom FM. He’s also lead singer with cult Irish bands Kerbdog and Wilt, and has previously hosted shows such as The Wireless and The Battleaxe. Since 2010, Cormac has co-presented The Rick O’Shea Show every weekday between 2pm – 4.30pm.

Recently Cormac was a mentor in this year’s Euro Song with his hit ‘Be Mine’.

Commenting on his new role, Cormac Battle said: “Imagine wandering around a modern music festival. I will be doing a show that represents that vibe with a mix of Rock/Indie/Dance. Anybody who was a fan of my Rock Show ‘The Battleaxe’ will love this….it’s going to move at the speed of a rocket so lock up your daughters and hold on……it could get fact it will!”

Head of 2fm, Dan Healy said: “Cormac made his mark with the Battleaxe on Sunday nights and we’re delighted he’s part of the new Friday night mix on 2fm as he is a fantastic presenter.”

    Can’t see this working. You will have the dance music fans tune out when rock is played and the rockers turning their back on Mr The Ax… I think his Sunday show was perfect for that spot (not just because it was when i was on the bus back to big smoke) but he had a big following and Friday radio tends to be dead for listeners. I do wish him the best but please drop the dance……

    This is shit, the Battleaxe was great and at a great time. The new show is in a worse time-slot and an hour shorter, more 2fm crap!
