Kenny signs for agent to the stars

HE is one of the most recognisable faces in Ireland, and now Pat Kenny is enjoying the services of the country's agent to the stars.

The 66-year-old is a recent addition to the showbiz stable at Noel Kelly's NK Management.

The move sees the former Prime Time host (inset) back alongside a string of old RTE colleagues including Ryan Tubridy, Dave Fanning and Joe Duffy.

"We've been working with Pat since early 2013," Mr Kelly said. "He is a total professional and a pleasure to work with."


Mr Kelly and his team were also involved in Kenny's negotiations to join Newstalk last year, a high-profile switch that came as a shock to everyone at RTE.

After more than 30 years there, Kenny decided to leave Montrose and make a move to the commercial station.
