98FM has today announced a new Breakfast duo on Dublin radio. Rebecca Shekleton and Brendan O’Loughlin will take to the morning airwaves from March 16th.
98FM’s Big Breakfast with Rebecca and Brendan promises to be an instant shot of ‘get up & go’ every morning, as they keep Dublin listeners entertained and in the loop with all they need to know for the day ahead.
From listener interaction to the latest news and traffic updates, music to start your day and great giveaways, 98FM’s Big Breakfast will bring a new and energetic morning radio show to Dublin.
Best pals Rebecca and Brendan have been making a name for themselves on the Irish and international podcast scene as two of the creators and hosts of popular superfan podcast, Shrine of Duty, an homage to the UK Drama Series, Line of Duty. The pair appeared on national television last year, to meet ‘Line of Duty’ star Adrian Dunbar who congratulated them on the success of their podcast.
From Dundrum originally, Rebecca fed her passion for all things showbiz and pop culture as entertainment reporter for 98FM, interviewing Hollywood stars on the red-carpet including Ben Affleck, Rebel Wilson and Seth Rogan. Rebecca’s popularity with Dublin audiences led to her own weekend magazine show ‘Saturday Social’ on 98FM.
Brendan, who has been part of the station for over 10 years, will be a familiar voice to 98FM fans, having anchored news bulletins across the day, keeping listeners up to date on all the latest happenings in Dublin. Brendan also recently picked up a much-coveted Gold IMRO award for ‘News Broadcaster of the Year’ judged by his peers.
Awarded ‘Music Station of the Year’ for the past two years in a row, 98FM entertains a weekly audience of over 200,000 people and recently exceeded 1million fans across the station’s social media channels.
Commenting on the new Breakfast line-up, Michael Brett, 98FM Content Director said: “I’m delighted to welcome Rebecca and Brendan to 98FM’s Big Breakfast. No strangers to 98FM listeners, they’re both hugely passionate about what they do and I’m looking forward to the energy and entertainment they’ll bring to morning radio in Dublin”.
Sharing their excitement, Rebecca and Brendan said: “This is a dream job for both of us. We get to work together every day and do we what we love: talking and listening! We have lots of exciting plans for 98FM’s Big Breakfast and we’re looking forward to waking up Dublin and joining them in their morning routine”.
