Mario Rosenstock’s ‘Sunday Roast’ has ended after two and a half years on-air.
In an announcement on Twitter, presenter Rosenstock confirmed that he is disappointed but the situation was “beyond [his] control.”
The news comes only a couple of weeks after the programme received a nomination at the IMRO Radio Awards. Rosenstock was shortlisted for ‘Speech Broadcaster of the Year – Full Service.’
One of the shows producers, Patrick Haughey, called the show a career highlight as he shared behind the scenes footage of their first show.
Producing Mario's Sunday Roast was one of the highlights of my career in radio. I'm very proud of what @GiftGrubMario ,@ruthdevaney and I created. Thanks to all of our amazing contributors. This video from day1 in studio is a flavour of how much fun we had making this show! https://t.co/Bgpj0uTKZu pic.twitter.com/pnsB2gUs8u

It’s unclear at this time what will replace the programme. Rosenstock will continue to work on The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show’s ‘Gift Grub’ feature.
