Tom McGuire, Head of Radio 1 says: says: "The growing audience for Today with Sean O'Rourke and The Marian Finucane Show demonstrates that listeners still recognise RTÉ Radio 1 as the home of 'talk radio' while the performances of This Week, Countrywide, The Weekend on One and Sunday Sport serves to illustrate the quality and versatility of RTÉ Radio 1 across all genres. We look forward to serving our million-strong audience in 2015."
Commenting today, Head of RTÉ 2fm, Dan Healy said: "This is the turning point for 2fm. The new schedule has bedded in; the audience is engaged. I'm especially pleased for Ryan Tubridy and his team, who have done the hard yards over the last four years. The growth in all the key radio measurements demonstrate why he's one of the biggest broadcasters in the country. Breakfast shows invariably have slower starts but we are attracting a six figure audience. I predict that Breakfast Republic will own breakfast shortly."
Aodan Ó Dubhghaill, Head of RTÉ lyric fm, said: "Without doubt RTÉ lyric fm is for listeners that are looking for a real alternative. With an increase in people tuning to the station 'where life sounds better' across weekends, there is something to satisfy everyone's taste for specialist or more mainstream music.""
