Lorraine Murphy is joining Cork’s 96FM to present a new programme as part of a revamped evening schedule.
Lorraine, who is from Lissarda in County Cork, is joining from Tipp FM where she currently presents the weekday Breakfast Show. The thirty-two-year-old Journalism graduate previously worked as Breakfast co-presenter at WLR in Waterford and also at Red FM.
Cork’s 96FM & C103 Content Controller, Brendan O’Driscoll said: “Lorraine is a very talented and experienced presenter. We have very exciting plans for a new evening show and she is the ideal person to present it. I’m looking forward to welcoming her back to Cork and to the 96FM team.”
Lorraine Murphy, who will also present a new Saturday afternoon show, added “Growing up in Cork, 96FM was the soundtrack to my childhood and was the only station ever played in the house. Having worked in radio all over the country for the past number of years, I am absolutely thrilled to be returning to Leeside. A brand new show, in one of the best stations in the country, I can’t wait to be a part of it!”
The news comes just days after the latest JNLR figures showed 96FM has 212,000 adults listening weekly. The station’s daily talk show, The Opinion Line, presented by P.J. Coogan has 76,000 listeners each day.
Tipp FM is currently advertising for a new breakfast show presenter.
