FORMER RTE star Pat Kenny could be in line to win a major radio award with the national broadcaster, despite having made the controversial switch to rivals Newstalk last month.

Kenny's old show, 'Today with Pat Kenny', has been shortlisted for the best news story in the PPI Radio Awards news and sports programme section.

The show, called 'We Live in a Toilet', is in direct competition with Kenny's new employers Newstalk and its Prom Night programme.

Kenny's replacement Sean O'Rourke's old Radio One show 'News at One' has also been shortlisted in the best news category section.

The winners will be announced at the PPI Radio Awards Gala night on Friday October 4 at Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny.
