Behind every successful man. . .
Q HE may have been criticised for not having any female guests on his opening Newstalk programme, but Pat Kenny is happily working with an all-female team at the commercial station.
The veteran anchor was supported behind the scenes by five of Newstalk's experienced producers and researchers.
Deputy station editor Patricia Monahan is currently overseeing the show alongside producers Eimear Bradley and Eithne Kelly. Helping to complete the team are researchers Jessica Kelly and Aisling Moore.
Meanwhile, Sean O'Rourke has Kenny's old Radio 1 team at his disposal. The RTE programme has five producers, Kay Sheehy, Conor Kavanagh, Donal O'Herlihy, Tara Campbell and John McMahon.
Also helping O'Rourke are senior reporters Valerie Cox and Paddy O'Gorman.
