Rick O’Shea’s weekday radio show has been axed – in favour of moving him to the weekend slot.
The Rick O’Shea Show with Cormac Battle will air from 11am -1pm on Saturdays and Sundays, with new host Tracy Clifford now taking over the slot.
“Over the past 14 years, 2fm has become my home and I’m thrilled to be a big part of this new and exciting schedule,” Rick said.

“The weekends are a brand new adventure for me and the guys and we very much look forward to disrupting your mornings with our usual brand of total nonsense.”
“For all the shows listeners, we’re moving shop around the corner and the sign over the door will remain the same. See you on the other side!”
“I have been a huge fan of Rick ‘O’Shea’s since he presented on Atlantic 252 and I’m delighted Rick is bringing his brand of fan to a weekend audience,” head of 2fm Dan Healy said.
“2fm has been increasing its audience at the weekend and Rick will definitely help accelerate that. Being a leader in the social media field and with his broadcasting prowess, I know that there’s a huge opportunity to grow 25-34 audience in the market.”

Rick will be replaced on 2fm by Spin 1038 presenter Tracy Clifford, marking another big change at the station.
“Tracy Clifford has been a household name for younger audiences in Dublin, having been part of an extremely successful breakfast show,” Dan said.
“Large audiences are already familiar with her humour, passion for music and her journalistic skills, and now with her national radio station debut, the rest of you are about to get a blast of the Tracy Clifford magic. It’s an exciting period for both Tracy and our listeners.”
Already Eoghan McDermott has taken over the Colm Hayes Show and Ryan Tubridy has been moved to RTE Radio One.
