Weekends are heating up on Newstalk

We are shaking up our weekend schedule with a new show from Bobby Kerr and the return of Ivan Yates

Newstalk 106-108fm has today announced it is shaking up its weekend schedule with a variety of new and fresh shows set to take over the airwaves each Saturday and Sunday morning.

The primary changes will see Bobby Kerr presenting a new magazine-style show on Sunday mornings in addition to the regular Down to Business programme on Saturdays. Ivan Yates marks his return to Newstalk with a new, agenda setting, two hour show on Sunday mornings.

The new schedule will kick in from 1st April and will focus on bringing the very best of current affairs, business, science, health, sport and talk radio to the nation’s weekends.

Speaking about the new look for weekends at Newstalk, Tim Collins, CEO of Newstalk 106-108fm, said: “We’re really excited about this new look for weekends at Newstalk. Ivan’s return is a key part of the new schedule and we also have an entertaining new magazine-style show from Bobby Kerr on Sunday mornings, which will be completely different to his well-known Down to Business programme.

“Dr. Ciara Kelly will be bringing her show, Alive and Kicking, to a new slot at 9am on Saturday morning while Talking Point with Sarah Carey will take over the 8am slot. Weekends on Newstalk will continue to set the agenda with the best guests and cutting edge opinion and analysis while Off the Ball will continue to deliver Ireland’s best sports programme every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.”
