Stephen Byrne lands huge new presenting gig in Australia

Stephen Byrne has landed a huge new presenting gig in Australia.

The Irish presenter made the move Down Under back in January, after leaving his role at RTÉ 2fm.

The 32-year-old, who spent part of his childhood living in Melbourne, has since nabbed a new job at one of Australia’s biggest radio stations KIIS 1065.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Stephen wrote: “Fabrizio! HERE WE GO! Absolutely over the moon to join the @kiis1065 family 💜.”

“A station I’ve been listening to for years and the home of @kyleandjackieo. Australian radio has always been my motivator so to be back on air where I grew up, on Sydney’s #1 Hit Music Station is a dream come true.

“Catch me all this week filling in for Mitch Churi from 7pm in Sydney and Melbourne and on weekends 🎙️🎶💜.”

Stephen announced his shock departure from RTÉ 2fm last March before making the move to Australia.

The presenter had worked for the national broadcaster for over a decade, and hosted his own weekend show on 2fm from 3-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

In a statement shared on Instagram, Stephen wrote: “Some news! Tomorrow will be my last show on 2fm.”

“I want to say a massive thank you to the various teams I’ve had the privilege of working with over the last number of years especially Kate, Graham, Dave, Cormac, Zbyszek and the late Helen Doorly who we all dearly miss.”

“This was something I had originally in my mind for 2020 but the world changed quite quickly there for a minute.”

“Regardless, the last 12 months especially have been my favourite.”

“I want to say a massive thank you to the countless people who have worked to bring some of the biggest names in film and music to the show, it’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and beyond that making so many long lasting friendships.”

“I’ve been very proud to have been the first home for voices like Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi, Lizzo and more to talk on Irish radio. I’ll have some news soon but beyond that I can’t wait to have time off for the first time since I was in Transition Year.”

“Finally, thank you to all the listeners every week, radio has been around a long time but these last two years have more than ever indicated its worth and it would be nothing without you tuning in and what you bring to it.”

“For the first time in a really long time I’m very excited for the future and what this brings. More on that soon though. I AM SO EXCITED. Stephen X.”
