RTE women are on top as they ‘smash’ radio records


While RTE radio may not be winning in the day time figures, the station have revealed Claire Byrne and Marian Finucane are “smashing” records.

2FM recently underwent a complete makeover, changing their listenership age and told Goss.ie with the latest figures they are now “the biggest station in the country for 15-34 year olds.

“We set out to do what we meant to do,” a spokesperson revealed.

The new and revamped 2FM is only “9 months old and we have to take every step as it comes. We haven’t even have a full year yet,” they added.

Claire Byrne jumped up by a massive 14,000 listeners – making it a fantastic year for the presenter who got married this summer.
