Baskin returning to Irish airwaves
31 Jul 2015 20:08
Former RTÉ presenter Bibi Baskin is returning to the Irish airwaves presenting a show on Cork's 96FM.
-
She is joining the morning talk show Opinion Line which airs weekdays from 9am-midday.
-
Baskin tweeted today that she is "delighted" to be part of the show from next Tuesday, August 4.
-
The broadcaster recently moved back to Ireland after living in India for 14 years.
-
Speaking on Saturday Night with Miriam last week, she explained that she decided to move back to Ireland as she was "bored" and wanted new challenges.
-
She told host Miriam O'Callaghan that she is so happy that she decided to live in Cork, which she "absolutely loves", and said the people are "very welcoming" to her.
-
When O'Callaghan asked her if she would go back into radio due to her distinctive voice, Baskin said she hadn't "thought about radio" but agreed that there were lots of great radio stations in Cork and thought it could be "very interesting indeed".
-
Baskins has now taken to Twitter to thank O'Callaghan for suggesting she try radio in Cork, and Opinion Line talk show host Deirdre O'Shaughnessy for welcoming her on the show.
