Upcoming TV station UTV Ireland today announced the appointment of three women – including two former radio news reporters – as reporters for their news department.
Joining Claire Brock, who leaves TV3 for the new station – despite UTV having previously denied the move, will be ex-Newstalk newsreader and former Head of News & Sport with iRadio Sinéad O’Donnell.
Prior to working with iRadio, Sinéad was Deputy News Editor with Sligo’s Ocean FM. She will also be known to Irish TV viewers as a reporter with TV3 News, where she worked recently while working for Newstalk.
Also joining UTV Ireland’s news reporter team is Sarah O’Connor, formerly a reporter for North West Radio and Courts Correspondent for Independent Network News, a position she also held with UTV’s radio network.
All three will be reporting for UTV Ireland’s new “Ireland Live” and “Ireland Live at 10” programmes from when the station launches at the start of January 2015.
UTV Ireland announced the appointments by twitter this afternoon.
