The favourites to replace Vincent Browne on ‘Tonight’ have been revealed

Vincent Browne has confirmed that he will be stepping down from TV3’s popular current affairs programme, Tonight.

The 73-year-old is leaving the show a year earlier than planned, as he was advised to avoid undue stress.

“There have been stresses around the programme otherwise. And I decided I needed to avoid that, and I have done that a year ahead of the end of my contract.”

Ahead of his departure, Vincent thanked TV3 for their support over the years, “I am particularly grateful to TV3 for rescuing me from a financial crisis – all of my own making.”

A number of names have already been tipped to replace Vincent – including broadcaster Ivan Yates, journalist Michael Clifford, and Pat Kenny.

According to the Irish Independent, Ladbrokes have ranked Michael Clifford as the front-runner, with odds of 11/10, while Ivan Yates has come in second with 2/1 odds, and Pat Kenny stands with odds of 7/1.

Yesterday, Bill Malone, Director of Programming at TV3, said, “Vincent has made an extraordinary contribution to Irish journalism and to Irish broadcasting.”

“As the presenter of the ‘Tonight’ show, Vincent encapsulated the mood of the nation during unprecedented economic and political turmoil. His commitment to highlighting inequality and injustices in Irish life has been unwavering over his journalistic career,” he added.
