Keelin Shanley to take over Radio 1’s Late Debate
Morning Edition host Keelin Shanley will move to present RTÉ’s Radio 1’s late night news and current affairs programme The Late Debate from January.
The change comes as Morning Edition is cancelled due to “ongoing financial pressures” according to an RTÉ spokesperson. Keelin Shanley will however continue her role as presenter of RTÉ One’s The Consumer Show.
The Late Debate programme airs Tuesday to Thursday at 10pm and is an hour-long news analysis, politics and current affairs programme. It is currently hosted by Cormac Ó hEadhra, former drivetime host on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta. Cormac only took over the show in September this year.
Keelin will start the show on 6th January 2015, whilst Cormac will continue working at RnaG.
