Mairead Ronan has revealed that she is leaving Today FM after 15 years at the station.

The presenter and producer announced the news on Twitter and Instagram, writing in a statement: "After 15 incredible years with Today FM I've decided to jog on, and not just for a 5k!

"I'm so lucky to have had 12 exceptional but exhausting years with the Ray D'Arcy Show and then had the pleasure of producing the brilliant Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show since 2014."

She added that she has made the decision to leave the radio station due to being busy with her TV work and her blow-drying brush business, saying: "I've decided to take a large leap and try new things."

Ronan concluded the message with the hashtags #scared and #excited.

The 36-year-old presenter joined the RTÉ travel series Getaways in January, replacing previous host Angela Scanlon. 

She also hosts RTÉ's reality series Ireland's Fittest Family.

Last September she welcomed her daughter Eliza, with her husband Louis. She is also mother to son Dara from her previous marriage.
