Ivan Yates returns to Communicorp’s Newstalk

Ivan Yates is heading back to Newstalk this spring with a new weekly two-hour radio show.

Ivan will be on-air from 11am to 1pm each Sunday, discussing politics, business, current affairs and sport with invited guests. The new programme will kick off from Sunday, April 2nd.

Speaking about his return to Newstalk, Ivan said: “I spent seven fantastic years at Newstalk and had always envisaged the possibility of returning. With all that’s been happening in politics across the world lately, between Trump and Brexit, I can’t wait to get back on air to share my views!”

Also commenting on Ivan’s upcoming show, CEO of Newstalk 106-108fm, Tim Collins, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Ivan back. Ivan is a much-loved member of the Newstalk family so a return was always on the cards. We’ve been in discussion for some time to find the most suitable slot and programme format so we’re really looking forward to hearing him bring his unmissable insights and opinion to Sunday mornings with this exciting new show. ”

The former Fine Gael TD left Newstalk breakfast in July last year to go travelling with his wife.
