Ken Sweeney has been a journalist for over a decade working with the Herald, Irish Star, Sunday Tribune, and Irish Independent. From Dublin's Navan Road, he first worked in advertising and trained as a copywriter.

Moving to the UK, he spent five years at the BBC Film Archives while releasing two albums and four singles under the band name 'Brian' for London based Irish label Setanta Records. Brian's 1999 single 'Turn Your Lights on' was both a BBC Radio One Single Of The Week, and nominated Irish single of the year but failed to make him millions.
His move into journalism began interviewing subjects on camera as editor of Ireland's first CD Rom Magazine Enter.

Michael Jackson's Irish Driver is his first radio documentary.
