Hector Ó hEochagáin steps down from his RTÉ 2fm breakfast show this Friday and will pursue other projects with RTÉ Television in 2014.
The 44-year-old Navan-born presenter will return to RTÉ TV in Spring for the second series of Hector Goes in which he looks into issues both serious and light-hearted.
Dan Healy, Head of 2fm and newly-appointed Director of Radio Sales, said: “Hector is a major personality and hugely loved by Irish audiences and has played a significant role in developing breakfast radio with his show Breakfast with Hector on 2fm.
"‘Keep her lit’ helped take the country through the past three years of the recession with outside broadcasts from Friday factory floor fillers to second chance debs.
"RTÉ 2fm would like to take this opportunity to thank Hector for the enormous effort it takes to broadcast a breakfast show and for the entertainment he gave to his ‘soldiers of the dawn’.”
RTÉ 2fm will be announcing a breakfast show early in the New Year.
