DJ Nikki Hayes has handed in her notice at Spin 1038 after deciding to move on to other projects.
The broadcaster did her last show at the Spin Cafe in Dundrum Town Centre over the weekend.
The mum-of-one said she was juggling too much and decided to cut back after signing off for the final time.
“I’m working seven days a week, so something had to give,” she told the Diary.
“I will still be broadcasting on other outlets that I’m involved with.”
She said it was “time to let the young talent reign” and an exciting time for radio.
Nikki (below) has also put pen to paper for the first time and is due to release her new book later in the year after chronicling her battle with mental health issues.
Nikki (inset), who is married to army mechanic Frank Black, has been with Spin for the past six years but has been working on radio for more than 20, having initially started off her career with RTE.
She left the national broadcaster in 2010 and then started working with Spin.
Nikki is also a mental health advocate and has spoken openly in the past about her own battle to deal with having a borderline personality disorder.
'If there's any blood coming out of that lamb I'd advise you to drink it." With those words, 30 years ago, an obscure nightshift DJ became Public Enemy Number One and set out on a path that would change the landscape of Irish broadcasting. His name was Gerry Ryan.
This week, on Inside Culture (Radio 1, Mon 10pm), writer and academic Angela Nagle did something that is depressingly uncommon in all media. She talked about social and political shifts to the right in a way that was objective, reasoned, informed, informative, authoritative.
