“We’ve worked hard in 2021 at defining a unique music position as “The Home of the 80s & 90s” and rebooted our breakfast show with the arrival of Colm Hayes and Lucy Kennedy. The combination of the best music from two great classic decades, the fun and family values brought with ‘The Colm & Lucy Breakfast Show’ and our strong line up of Trina Mara, Niall Boylan and Damien Farrelly has proven to resonate very well with listeners”, said Branigan.
