Ray Foley leaving Today FM for 98FM.
It's all over Twitter, so it must be true...
And for those of you scratching your ceanns wondering "why move from National to Regional?" Well, it's always nice to get the coveted breakfast show in the station where you used to work (just ask Jim Jim Nugent) - it being the flagship slot of most radio schedules - and it's all under the Communicorp banner so everyone's a winner.
According to reports, Ray Foley and JP will step into the recently vacated void left by Aidan Power and Claire Solan from November onwards.
Speaking about the news, Foley said: "I can’t believe 98FM are giving me and JP the breakfast show! This show has been a dream of mine ever since I was a newsreader on 98FM a decade ago. I’ll miss my mates in Today FM but this prospect was just too tempting to turn down. Dublin is in for a rude awakening!"
So now that we know who's taking over from Aidan Power, who's going to take over Mr Foley's Today FM lunch time slot…?
Answers on a postcard please... I'd have to scrawl KC across mine. He's a fellow Mayo man/PPI Broadcaster of The Year nominee/winner, with the same relaxed presenting style as Foley sans the Marmite factor (and *ahems*muchbettertasteinmusic). Then again, I'm ever so slightly biased.

Today FM or 98FM doesn't matter, he'll be crap no matter where he goesPosted 13:43 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
Most annoying man on the planet.Posted 14:29 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
KC is from CorkPosted 14:36 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
Sorry to break it to you Keith, but he's actually from Mayo :)Posted 14:52 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
Absolute legend. Regularly has me cracking up and no other DJ in Ireland or the UK has done that before. Won't be the same.Posted 18:31 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!Posted 18:51 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
So delighted he's leaving Today FM, he's crap. Don't get 98FM down here so I'll never have to hear him again! Whoopie!Posted 22:09 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
and so my quest to get into jps pants continues....Posted 23:01 | Fri 12th Oct 2012
Thank God for that. I'd never even let D'Arcy finish telling us who's up next and that station was turned off because of this tool ! I'm more surprised that he still has any radio broadcasting job. Anyway 98fm is never listened to in my car so no more dickhead foley (even by accident) forever....JP's apparently gone too to add the special ability of forced laughter when Foley opens his mouth.Posted 14:41 | Sat 13th Oct 2012
I know he's not everyone's cup of tea but Ray Foley is probably one of the most talented people on the radio on a global scale. He's incredibly quick and has amazing observational comedy and brilliant timing. JP is also a very funny guy, both of them work brilliantly together. I'd say KC will fill the slot, tough job!Posted 16:08 | Sat 13th Oct 2012
a sad day for 98fm takeing him onPosted 18:58 | Tue 16th Oct 2012
