I'd happily move slot, says 2fm DJ Gogan

VETERAN DJ Larry Gogan has insisted he would be happy to front a weekend show on 2fm and give up his regular slot in the weekday schedule.

The 75-year-old presenter has worked at 2fm – the former Radio 2 – since its first broadcast in 1979.

With new boss Dan Healy making changes at the RTE station in a bid to boost audience, Gogan (below) said he would be willing to play his part.

Gogan's show, The Golden Hour, goes out Monday to Friday from 1pm to 2pm.

"I'd be very happy to move to the weekends if that's what happens. It would be nicer," Gogan said.

"I'd rather do that than three hours a day. I'm just content to be working at my age."

Healy, who moved to 2fm from 98FM last year, is planning to fill Hector O hEochagain's empty breakfast slot with Jennifer Maguire and Bernard O'Shea.

He is also bringing young presenter Louise McSharry into the weekday line-up, giving her a evening show in the evening.
