Long-serving 98fm drivetime presenters Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore are going national, joining sister station Today FM.
The pair hosted breakfast on the Communicorp station in Dublin for eight years before moving to drivetime in 2010.
It’s not been confirmed what time their new show will air, or who is replacing the duo at 98fm.
Dermot and Dave’s new daily show will commence in August, when they’ll be based at Marconi House rather than Grand Canal Quay.
Commenting on the news, Dave Moore said: “98fm gave us the chance to develop and grow. But taking the chemistry that Dermot and I have to the entire country on Today FM is an amazing opportunity. It’s the station we’ve admired for years and we know we’ll really enjoy making more great radio every weekday and we hope Ireland enjoys it too!”
Dermot Whelan added: “Other broadcasters have come knocking over the years to try and attract us away but to be honest, the creative track record and reputation of Today FM over so many years made it a simple enough decision to join their stellar line-up. “We’re very excited about moving to Today FM and look forward to having the craic with a wonderful national audience”.
Speaking about the duo’s move to Today FM, Peter McPartlin, CEO of Today FM said, “Today FM has always prided itself on a strong line-up of personalities that are loved by listeners right across the country. Given their pedigree, it’s a real coup for us to add Dermot and Dave to that existing pool of talent. We’re all very excited about what this pair will bring to the station”.
