Radio 1 return makes sense to Tubs
31 Jul 2015 13:01
Ryan Tubridy has said his return to RTÉ Radio 1 from 2fm this September makes sense in his "head and heart".
-
The Ryan Tubridy Show begins on RTÉ Radio 1 on Monday September 7 and will air between 9:00 and 10:00am on weekday mornings. Brendan O'Connor is presenting in that time slot for the summer, following the end of the John Murray Show on July 3.
-
Speaking to O'Connor on Friday morning, Tubridy said he was "extremely excited" about the move and described the 9:00am show as "a breather" between Morning Ireland and Today with Sean O'Rourke.
-
Tubridy said his job was "life and blood stuff" to him.
-
When asked by O'Connor if he was coming back to Radio 1 because he was now too old for 2fm, Tubridy laughed and replied: "I think there's probably truth in that. I think it's no station for old men! It's time to go back to feel young again!"

On the new show's content, he said: "We're assembling a team; it's like something from The Avengers. When we come up with that then we'll do a mission statement."
-
The broadcaster paid tribute to the work of his current team at 2fm and said that John Murray had done a "gorgeous job" on Radio 1 with his 9:00am show, and was the first person to text him to congratulate him on his return.
-
Tubridy is travelling to Ethiopia this Sunday to see first-hand the work of aid agency GOAL in the country.
