One of iRadio's longest-serving presenters is making the move to national radio station Today FM.

Fergal D'Arcy made the announcement on his Facebook page, writing "there's something I have to tell you all".

Speaking to, D'Arcy said it  has "always been my dream" to work for TodayFM.

"Their creativity and personality oozes what radio is all about ... Talking!"

D'Arcy has worked in iRadio since 2007 when the station first launched.

"It was a tough day for me handing in my notice, but iRadio couldn't have been more supportive".

On moving to Dublin, D'Arcy is excited to be "coming home" to where he learned his craft.

'It seems like a lifetime ago since I was studying journalism in DIT... But it looks like Fergy's coming home to roost".

He joked that the new show might be called "igohomeless with Fergal d'Arcy" after "weeks" of househunting in Dublin's tough rental market.

On the new show, he told that listeners should "expect something different... Very different".

"Let's just say we'll be concentrating on a good music mix with plenty of banter and it will be a force to be reckoned with".

D'Arcy will be take up the 7-9pm slot on weekdays on the station.

D'Arcy has several awards under his belt, having picked up a Gold PPI Award for 'Light Hearted Magazine Programme' in 2008 and a Silver PPI Award in 2013 for 'Best Music Programme'.

Peter McPartlin, Today FM’s CEO said in a statement that "we have been admiring Fergal’s on-air creativity for some time".

"I’m delighted that we’ve managed to get one of the brightest young talents on Irish radio onto Today FM".
