On Friday, Ray said: "Kathryn will be here on Monday and I will see you in a couple of week's time. Grainne is no stranger to Ireland AM and has filled in for Muireann a couple of times since she moved home from South Africa with husband Leon Jordaan."

The Galway broadcaster worked with Virgin Media, previously TV3, for years as a news anchor. I can't put him in jail for the rest of his life on the basis that I think he’s going to be a conman forever,” he said." There have been a lot of changes in radio on Radio 1, Newstalk, Today FM and 2fm over the past couple of years and Kathryn always get a massive response when she slots in on Radio 1, is that something she would like to do full time? Kathryn recently told RSVP Magazine: "I love radio. Television is in my DNA, but radio is something I have been doing for a long time now and I am still building up my flying hours.

No, I did not! "So you never know what’s going to happen, life is like that.

It is a very different machine." The mother of two added: "I love how much Irish people love radio that still blows me away whenever I am on air. She told this month's issue of RSVP Magazine: "The secret for me has always been to be really prepared and to know your stuff before going on air. He said he would interview the managing director as part of the documentary. "Radio offers different Irish phrases, different accents from around the country and different conversations. People just want an aul’ chinwag most of the time and I am someone that loves a chinwag. If you begin by spoofing, you’re in trouble the minute something goes wrong." Last month, Ryan Tubridy was off air and he was replaced by comedian Oliver Callan and broadcaster and fashion designer Brendan Courtney. When he failed to pay, the company contacted RTÉ and discovered no such documentary had been commissioned and Sheedy had not been contracted by them Between the phones and the iPad, the company was at a loss of €13,539, the court heard.
