Jenny Greene thanks fans for their support after announcing her shock departure from RTÉ 2fm

The radio DJ announced her departure from the station on Tuesday


Jenny Greene has thanked those who have sent her messages of support, after she announced her shock departure from RTÉ 2fm on Tuesday.

Following reports that Jennifer Zamparelli is set to take over the station’s 10-1 slot, the radio DJ suddenly revealed her decision to leave 2fm.

Fans were left devastated by Jenny’s departure, and she’s since taken to Twitter to thank everyone for their kind words.

She wrote: “From the bottom of my heart thank u all for the lovely messages of support. I’m happy to say the only thing that’s made me cry today is the fact that all the newspapers think I’m 40 😢 Won’t be hitting that for another 4 yrs 😂❤️”

In her shock statement, Jenny confirmed, “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.”

“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.”

“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,” she added. “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 also released a statement saying, “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.”

Jennifer Zamparelli will take over RTÉ 2fm’s 10-1 slot from June 10th, 2019.
