Radio DJ and Irish music personality Tony Fenton has passed away.
He was 53. Fenton had been battling cancer for some time and was due to return to his hit show on TodayFM in the next couple of months.
Our thoughts are with Fenton's family and all at TodayFM.
Tributes have been pouring in to mark the passing of the radio legend.
RIP Irish DJ Tony Fenton .. He was a really nice guy and at 53 he's gone way too soon. My sympathy to his family.
