Legendary 2FM DJ Larry Gogan will be stepping down from the station at the end of January.

But it doesn't mean that he's retiring from the airwaves, as Larry is set to move to RTÉ Gold.

In a statement, Gogan said: "I have loved all my time on 2FM and would like to thank all the amazing support from all my listeners, great colleagues and all the fantastic Irish and International artists I have been privileged to support and be a part of their success.

"I am thrilled to be moving over to Gold full time and being part of that exciting new digital world."

Larry Gogan's lengthy career in broadcasting started in what was then Raidió Éireann in 1961. He joined the station after finishing school and quickly became a household name.

He was in the original roster of DJs when RTÉ Radio 2, which became RTÉ 2FM, was launched in 1979, and he's been presenting shows there ever since.

No stranger to the small screen, Larry also presented a variety of television programmes, including Pickin' The Pops, Go 2 Show and The Golden Hour.

Having previously commentated for television, Gogan was the Irish radio commentator for the Eurovision Song Contest.

He provided commentary between the 1984 and 2001 contest and again in 2008. He continued to be part of the Irish delegation up until the 2011 contest.

Larry is probably most famous for his Just a Minute Quiz, which has long been a part of Irish folklore.

Gogan will present his last programme on 2FM on Thursday 31st January 2019 as part of a day of special events celebrating the DJ.
