South East Radio will mark International Women’s Day by bringing more women on to the schedule for the day.
“We’re bringing in females from all ages and backgrounds to co-host our daytime shows, present our features such as Radio Bingo, voice our commercials and record our sports bulletins.
“There will also be musical guests, special guest appearances and interviews with some of Wexford’s and Ireland’s top females including; former ‘Where in the World’ host Theresa Lowe, novelist and journalist/columnist Amanda Brunker and musician Wallis Bird and T.V presenter.
“Former Wexford TD Avril Doyle and Irish T.V’s Sharon Clancy will also be involved in the day. The media industry can sometimes be quite male orientated and the staff at South East Radio want to give our listeners an opportunity to hear more female voices and what a better day to do it than International Women’s Day”.
Former South East Radio broadcaster Sharon Clancy returns to the station to co-host the Breakfast Show with Dave Redmond and Morning Mix will be geared towards female issues with female voices and will have contributions from local and national Irish business women and organisations such as the National Women’s Council. It will also see former Wexford TD and MEP Avril Doyle sit into the presenter’s seat to co-host with Alan Corcoran.
Emma Ní Riain will co-present The All Request Lunch with Tony Scott with some special guests yet to be confirmed.
Joleen Murphy, who recently completed a job bridge scheme with South East Radio, will join Alan McGuire on Drivetime and Lorraine Byrne will co-present the Country n’ Irish show with Tony Kehoe.
