The move comes following Ivan's successful return to Newstalk with Yates on Sunday in April this year

Newstalk 106-108fm has today announced that Ivan Yates will be returning to our weekday schedule, taking over the evening drive time show from September 4th, 2017.

Ivan will bring his own unique style to the three hour opinion-led programme, covering everything from current affairs and politics, to sport and business from 4pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Patricia Monahan, Managing Editor of Newstalk said:

“Ivan Yates is one of Ireland’s foremost commentators and has a long history with the station. His brand of straight talking, opinion led commentary will provide an engaging forum for listeners. This is an exciting time for the business as we continue to develop a brand of opinion led content.”

Ms Monahan added: "We are currently in discussions with both Chris Donoghue and Sarah McInerney about alternative roles within the Communicorp Group.”

The move comes following Ivan's successful return to Newstalk with Yates on Sunday in April this year.
