The RTE DJ told the Irish Independent that he is taking on work with Sky television and BBC radio.

Fanning is to fly to London next week to meet station bosses at BBC Radio 6 to develop a documentary series.

The veteran anchor revealed he is also lined up to shoot 20 in-depth interviews with well-known and established names in the music industry for Sky.

"I sold a batch of interviews I had already done to Sky which they're showing at the moment and now they're keen for more, so it'll be interesting," he said.

He was speaking at the annual fundraising lunch organised by Irish Independent columnist and former government minister Liz O'Donnell. The event, held at Fire on Dublin's Dawson Street yesterday, was in aid of Irish charity Chernobyl Children International.

Chernobyl Children International has spent over €92m on humanitarian and medical aid programmes.

Bono's wife Ali Hewson, who on the board of CCI, was in attendance. Other guests included Morah Ryan, Yvonne Keating and Lisa Fitzpatrick.
