*Clodagh Lawlor & Brian McEvoy.
CLARE FM has announced the addition of two new local presenters to its team.
Quin native Brian McEvoy has in recent weeks taken over the role as presenter of ‘Out The Gap’ airing weekdays from 2pm to 6pm. He succeeds Rory Hall who recently departed the station as the drivetime presenter and joins from iRadio following a three year spell which included fronting their weekend music show.
Country music singer, Clodagh Lawlor begins her own show with Clare FM this Saturday (April 16th). It will air every Saturday from 6pm to 8pm. The Newmarket-on-Fergus woman has previously presented on Live 95 in Limerick and completed the Today FM School of Radio.
Programme Director with Clare FM, Padraic Flaherty said he was very happy to see Brian and Clodagh join their line-up. “Both have grown up in Clare and understand what being local means to our audience. Brian and Clodagh have immense talent and will help contribute to the future listenership growth of Clare FM”.
Brian expressed his delight at joining Clare FM. “As an original Quin man who spent several years gallivanting around the globe without much of a sense of purpose, this seems like a very satisfying homecoming of sorts. I’ve been overwhelmed by the welcome I’ve received from the Clare FM staff and listeners so far. I can’t wait to find my groove and really get stuck into making fun and engaging radio for the people of Clare and beyond”.
Clodagh was equally content to have a new role with the station. “I have always wanted to be on the radio since finishing college and coming onto the Irish Country music scene. Being a part of my local radio station is an honour for me. Everyone has been so welcoming and extremely encouraging. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me at Clare FM”.
