Miriam O'Callaghan has talked to RTÉ.ie about her Radio One programme, 'Miriam Meets' and about 'The Late Late Show'.

At the launch of RTÉ's new autumn season O'Callaghan talked about her radio show which was originally going to air for the summer but has been extended into the autumn season.

The 'Prime Time' presenter said: "Well they made me an offer that I couldn't refuse on the basis that I just loved doing the radio. I only did it kind of on the spur of the moment, I'd been asked for a good few years and I'd always said no because I have a thousand children! Then I just thought 'No, this year I'll do it' and I loved it.

"I've done Television for a long time and I've had such an amazing reaction to radio because I think people are sometimes distracted in Television by how you look so I get realms written about dresses, hair all of that. Whereas people really listen to you [on radio], I love the medium.

"I wanted to see if I could do it; I might have been a disaster which is always a risk actually, some people haven't transferred from television to radio. Touch wood it worked."

Following the enormous amount of pre-summer speculation over who the new presenter of 'The Late Late Show' would be and ahead of the new season in September, O'Callaghan said: "The nation must be bored talking about that. It's history now I'll just be sitting down looking forward to watching it when it comes on.

"It's turned out well for me, it's hard to say that but it has. I just hope it works well and I'll be watching it."

'Miriam Meets…' airs Sundays on RTÉ Radio One.
