Jim McCabe returns to breakfast at Classic Hits 4fm

Classic Hits 4fm is putting Jim McCabe back on breakfast to double head with PJ, whilst Damian moves to mid-mornings.

Damian told bosses at the Dublin-based station he didn’t want to get up at 3.30 in the morning any more so he’s doing a straight swap with Jim.

From Monday, 5th September, the station will air PJ and McCabe at breakfast.

Andy Matthews, Programme Director, told staff: “I wish the boys the very best of luck with the moves and I’m sure you will join with me in wishing them only the very best…”

Jim was originally on breakfast from June 2011 but moved to mid-morning in October 2014.

    I am sad to see Damien leave the early slot for the later but best of luck Jim. Still listen to the breakfast slot with PJ and Jim.

    Apparently that was the very reason Damien left 2FM back in early 2014, because he didn’t want to get up so early. Good luck to Jim and Damien on their new shows.

    Am LOVING PJ and Jim in the mornings. If I could bottle Jims laugh and sell it I would. They totally bounce off each other. Well done lads and best of luck to Damien
