Nicky Byrne is set to host a new radio programme to be aired on 2fm each Saturday morning between 9-11am to coincide with the hit RTÉ One series, Operation Transformation.

Op Tran on 2fm with Nicky Byrne starts this Saturday and continues for seven weeks.

Speaking about the new gig, Nicky Byrne said, “We’re giving listeners the opportunity to sign up to this year’s Operation Transformation 5K Challenge; you can follow the fitness plan and tune in to 2fm on Saturday mornings, 9-11am, for even more motivation and support. We’ll provide the soundtrack for you whether you want to walk, jog or run your way into 2015.”

On the final show on February 21, Nicky will be cheering on the listeners in the Phoenix Park in Dublin and Blarney Castle as he joins the thousands who finally complete the 5K challenge.
