A new 'Life' as TV3's Sybil swaps high heels for wellies at the Ploughing
Forget the high heels, wellies are now Sybil Mulcahy's go-to footwear after landing the presenter job on TV3's new primetime evening show.
Decked out in her Emma Bridgewater floral wellingtons at the National Ploughing Championships yesterday, the TV3 presenter revealed how she is fronting the new show which launches on our screens next January.
"The new show is called Life and it will go out five nights a week at 7.30pm. "It's my first prime time TV show and the new show represents a serious investment by TV3," said Sybil, who started her career as a reporter in the TV3 newsroom before joining Xpose and presenting a morning chat show with Martin King.
"Life will be all about life in Ireland and it's going to cover human interest stories all over the country plus there will be studio guests as well," the mother of three added.
Shaping up to be a cross between the One Show on BBC and RTE's Nationwide, Life will go out next year when TV3 lose the big crowd pulling soaps of Coronation Street and Emmerdale.
Sybil has already started her new job and begun travelling around Ireland to tape interviews that will feature in the early episodes. She is on the hunt for a male co-host. "Approaches have been made to some well known Irish personalities," she said.
