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.

She left the national broadcaster in 2010 and then started working with Spin.
