Garrett said in a statement today: “I would like to thank Denis O’Brien, Lucy Gaffney, Gervaise Slowey, and the members of the Newstalk board for their support over the years. I am very proud to have contributed to the development of Newstalk from its launch in 2001 to its development into a significant and influential media outlet.”
