Louise McSharry reveals 2fm show was AXED and claims she wasn’t allowed host final episode

Louise McSharry has revealed her 2fm show was axed, and has claimed she wasn’t allowed host her final episodes this weekend.

The broadcaster announced her shock departure from RTÉ 2fm on Friday, after 11 years at the station.

Louise had planned to host her final two shows on Saturday and Sunday morning, but bosses allegedly decided against it – leaving her “gutted”.

Speaking on her Instagram Story, Louise said: “Lots of people have been asking me if I’m on this weekend, I’m not.”

“I thought I was going to be, but then they decided that I shouldn’t be so I’m gutted about that because we actually had such a good show planned… So yeah I’m gutted.”

The radio presenter continued: “This wasn’t my call, but I’m honestly ok. This has happened to me before, it’s the nature of the beast, it’s the industry that I’m in. You just never know how long your job will last.”

“The last time this happened, if you’ve read my book you’ll know, that I was absolutely devastated. But I learned from that that you always have to have several pots on to boil and a plan in your back pocket for if things go wrong.”

“So I do have a plan, I plan to continue making the kind of content that I’ve been making on the radio station, but I’ll just be serving it up in a different way. So if you stick around, I’ll tell you as soon as I have concrete news on that,” she said.

“I really hate this kind of radio practice of not letting someone finish out their show, I think its s***ty.”

“I think it’s s***ty for me and my team who have put shows together for this weekend and I think its s***ty for the listeners who enjoy the show and expect it and I really wish that this wasn’t the situation,” Louise confessed.

The mother-of-two went on to thank her team, and wished her 2fm colleagues the best.

Louise concluded her posts by saying: “Sad that I won’t get to do the show this weekend, sad obviously that it’s over, but excited about whats next and getting the ball rolling on that.”

When contacted for a comment by, an RTÉ spokesperson said: “RTÉ wishes Louise all the best in the future.”

Since she announced her departure from 2fm, the popular presenter has been inundated with supportive messages on social media – with many slamming RTÉ’s decision to cancel her show.

Many said Louise “deserved better”, and stressed how much they’d miss her on the airwaves.
