Come Monday morning, I hope to have this radio presenting stuff Cracked

IT WAS mostly about production this week as I put the final touches to my new radio show.

'The Cracked i' kicks off on iRadio this Monday and I will co-host the show with stand-up comedian Cormac Moore, who is a good laugh.

This is my first full-time radio job so I am really excited, but nervous at the same time.

My week started in the studio on Monday, organising the show and finding out what it's going to sound like so that adds to the excitement.

There are three hours of dead space to fill so we have been going over concepts and ideas.

We are taking over from presenters Chris Greene and Ciara King, but it's definitely not going to be the same show and we are on at the slightly earlier time of 8.50 to 11.50pm.

The show is going to be left of centre and quirky.

Plus, I think the addition of Cormac, who is a stand-up will add a lot in terms of humour, sketches and what we can pull together.

I had Tuesday off from the radio studio to do a day of filming with Aviva TV in the run up to the Six Nations campaign.

I'm working alongside Aidan Power for the duration of the series and it's pretty cool.

I am in and out doing filming there and I will be working for Ireland's first game against Scotland this weekend.

On Wednesday nights I take an improv class with Neil Curran in the city centre.

He's really good so anyone interested in improv should check out his website LowerTheTone.com.

I really enjoy improv and myself and Neil are looking at collaborating on a show in the future.

This will be great as I won't be able to attend his classes anymore after next week because they will overlap with the radio show.

Yesterday and today were taken up with work so I am looking forward to a bit of a break this weekend.

I'm pretty wrecked by the time I get home from work and it will be a late finish for me when the live shows kick off.

It will be an adjustment, but I'm a bit of a night owl.

Hopefully it will be beneficial for me and will tire me out and help me to get to sleep at a reasonable hour!

Myself and my boyfriend Dara (Quilty) try to do something new on the weekends as often as possible so this Saturday we're going to a flight simulator at Simtech in Dublin Airport.

It's as close as you can get to taking off, flying and landing a plane while on the ground.

I have done it before as part of a presenter challenge on Bulletin TV so I have Dara very hyped up about how brilliant it is. Sunday is the first game of the Six Nations so I will be at the Aviva filming and then it will be an early night before out first live show on iRadio.

The Cracked i kicks off this Monday on iRadio from 8.50pm.
