First Marian Finucane gets moved to the weekend on RTE Radio, where her listenership has continued to soar. On Newstalk, Orla Barry and Brenda Power are ousted to make way for Tom Dunne. Today FM have no female presenters in their daytime Monday-Friday schedule (Anne Marie Kelly is done by 7am, Alison Curtis isn’t on until 10pm). And the new 4FM, which launches today has one, yes ONE female presenter, listed out of 21 programme hosts.
Incidentally, there was a comment on On The Record the other day from a chap called Ciaran saying he simply doesn’t like women on the radio. Lauren Murphy and Sweet Oblivion commented, asking him about his viewpoint.
So why aren’t there more women presenting shows during the day on radio?
