Jenny Greene has announced she is leaving 2FM.

The radio presenter has released a statement revealing that she is leaving the station for good – amid news that Jennifer Zamparelli is getting her own show.

Rumours were rampant this week that Jen is leaving Breakfast Republic to take over the Nicky Byrne Show.

Taking to Instagram Jenny wrote:

“It is with a very heart, that I have decided to say farewell to 2FM. 12 years ago John Clarke gave me the opportunity of a lifetime,” she wrote.

As well as hosting Electric Disco on her own, Jenny joined forces with Nicky Byrne 5 years ago.

“When Dan Healy pitched the idea of working alongside Nicky Byrne in 2014, never in a million years did I imagine, that such a risky pairing would be so successful or that I could find a friend who supports me both on and off air. He really is my rock,” she added.

“I want to thank all the loyal listeners who tuned in every day on 2FM and those who helped me along the way in RTE, you know who you are.

“To quote the late, great Terry Wogan, ‘there’s never a right time to leave something you love, but there might be a wrong time if you hang on too long.”

Station boss Dan Healy released a statement saying thank you to both Jenny and Nicky who is said is “leaving 2FM”, although it is presumed he will return after the Westlife tour.

Nicky and Jenny have been a massive part of 2FM over the past 5 years and have been an important part of changing the 2FM brand to what it is today and I would like to thank them both for delivering 5 years of great radio,” he wrote.

“I wish Nicky the best as he returns to a worldwide tour with Westlife and Jenny the best in her future endeavours.”
