RTÉ's renowned broadcaster Sean O'Rourke is hanging up the headphones on his illustrious career today.

But he has promised that there's "a fair bit left in the tank" as he moves on to the next phase of his life, having started with RTÉ in 1982.

The mid-morning news-show anchor (64) is already in talks with RTÉ about doing some more work after his retirement and, separately, he has been approached to write a book.
