RTÉ Radio 1 has announced that Dragons' Den presenter Richard Curran will be the new voice of The Business programme.

Curran, who is an award-winning business journalist, has worked across print and broadcast journalism over the last 21 years including Business Correspondent with RTÉ News, Business Editor of the Irish Independent and Deputy Editor of The Sunday Business Post.

Commenting on his new position at The Business, Curran said, "I am delighted to take on the role of presenting The Business of RTÉ Radio 1. It comes as a fascinating time in Ireland's recovery and hopefully renewal of the economy.

"People's understanding of business has changed enormously through both the good times and the bad over the last 20 years. The Business plays an important role in communicating with a very wide audience about the key issues, challenges and stories that shape our economy and working lives."

Curran's first programme will air on Saturday April 26 at 10am.
