Kieran Cuddihy is joining the Newstalk Breakfast team on a permanent basis, joining Shane Coleman as co-presenter weekdays 7am till 9am.
Kieran, who hails from Kilkenny and is a qualified solicitor, began his broadcasting career in Canadian radio where he developed a love for journalism. Since joining Newstalk in 2011, the self-confessed hurling fanatic has become a familiar voice to listeners presenting numerous shows.
Speaking about his new role, Kieran said: “I have two young children at home so I’m used to early mornings and am delighted to be joining Shane on Newstalk Breakfast. I have thoroughly enjoyed working on the show in the past and look forward to engaging with Newstalk Breakfast listeners on the issues that matter to them every morning.”
Commenting on the announcement, Newstalk Managing Editor, Patricia Monahan said: “We are delighted to announce Kieran and Shane will now be a permanent fixture for listeners during their morning commute. Kieran has always been a popular voice among our listeners and as a commuter and a Dad of young children he will bring listeners a fresh perspective on the news of the day.”
In January, Kieran began presenting ‘On The Record’, the station’s Sunday morning current affairs offering. A new presenter for that show will be announced in due course.
