RTE Radio One newsreader Michael Murphy suffered a rather embarrassing mishap just ahead of the ten o’clock news this morning. Miriam O’Callaghan, who was presenting the John Murray show, crossed to the newsroom for the bulletin only to be met with silence.
She tried on a number of occasions to contact the newsroom, without any luck, and was getting a little flustered when Mr Murphy could be heard talking – but apparently could not hear her.
And then she got through to him – only for the newsreader to reveal he’d been listening to another radio station.
“Sorry, I was tuned into Lyric,” he admitted, before starting the bulletin.
