New parents Dee and Marty – breakfast show hosts on NOVA – are to end their on-air partnership after the birth of their daughter.
Dee is back after six months maternity, and Marty has just completed two weeks paternity, but now Dee announced on-air that she is, “with a heavy heart, saying goodbye to Morning Glory, and a very happy heart that I’m doing it for the best reason ever which is my daughter.
“I have to say massive thanks to our boss Kevin and all the powers that be who aren’t telling me to just shut the door on my way out.”
Dee is staying with the station – from April 10th she’s heading back to the evening show playing music from the 80s and 90s from 7pm weekdays.
Conor Irwin will take Dee’s vacated morning chair for the moment and join Marty 6-10 weekday mornings, with Siobhain McDonnell continuing to bring listeners the latest news to wake up to.
