RTÉ Confirms Bryan Dobson as New Morning Ireland Presenter
05 Sep 2017 :
After 21 years presenting RTÉ One's Six One News programme, the broadcaster will move to be a permanent presenter on RTÉ Radio 1's flagship radio programme at the end of October.

RTÉ News today confirmed that Bryan Dobson will join the team of presenters on RTÉ Radio 1's . Bryan will join co-presenters Rachael English, Dr Gavin Jennings and Audrey Carville as a main anchor of the RTÉ Radio 1 programme.

In addition to presenting Morning Ireland, Bryan will continue to be a key presenter for RTÉ's television coverage of special state events including the forthcoming Budget 2018. 

Speaking about the move for the first time, Bryan Dobson said: "I will greatly miss Six One News but there comes a time to move on and grasp new opportunities. Morning Ireland is the country's most-listened-to radio programme with an audience that is highly engaged in the debates, arguments and discussions that make up the national conversation. I am hugely looking forward to joining the Morning Ireland team and playing my part in serving our listeners and in continuing to meet, and exceed, their expectations.

"Over many years presenting Six One News it has been a privilege to work alongside so many talented and committed colleagues to deliver accurate, relevant and engaging news to our large audience. I thank our viewers for their loyalty and my colleagues for their professionalism and cheerfulness."

Bryan Dobson joined RTÉ in 1987 as a reporter with the RTÉ Radio 1 This Week programme. Later that year he was appointed RTÉ’s Business Correspondent, as well as presenting the television business programme Marketplace. In 1991 he became presenter of RTÉ One O’Clock News, later moving to present the Nine News programme before being appointed anchor of the Six One News in 1996. 

He has also worked on a number of RTÉ documentary programmes including The Madness from Within, an account of the Irish Civil War; Witnesses to War, which featured interviews with Irish veterans of the Second World War and most recently guest presented special programmes on the Lusitania and 1916 Rising for RTÉ Nationwide.

Bryan will join the Morning Ireland team from 30 October. He will continue to co-present the RTÉ Six One News in the interim.
