Shannon’s Sean Reidy has departed his role on the production team behind the flagship Today FM show, Dermot and Dave but will remain involved on the national airwaves.

For the past three and a half years, Sean has been involved in researching and producing the biggest mid-morning programme on commercial radio in the country alongside Maria Devereux. The show is presented by Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore.

Clare matters have been discussed regularly during Reidy’s time with the show. Some of the items brought to national attention include activity at Shannon Airport, unique Clare County Council motions and the impact of The DDF Irish Open being held in Lahinch.

According to the most recent JNLR figures which were released in February of this year, the show’s listenership of 164,000 marked them as the most listened to radio show for audiences aged between 20 and 44.

Prior to joining Today FM, Sean worked in Spin 103.8 making the move to the capital following a stint with Clare FM.

Announcing his exit on social media, Reidy said his experience at Today FM was “unforgettable”. “It’s been a pleasure to represent Shannon and Clare on the national airwaves”.

A past pupil of St Caimin’s Community School in Shannon, Sean won’t be moving too far for his new role. He takes on the post of producer for Newstalk’s Lunchtime Live which is also broadcast from Marconi House.

Newstalk recently reshuffled their weekday schedule which resulted in Donegal native Andrea Gilligan taking over presenting duties for Lunchtime Live from Ciara Kelly. The show is broadcast from 12 to 2pm (Monday to Friday) and is based on a caller-driven format. Giligan’s mantle so far has been met favourably from national radio critics and will be boosted by the addition of the Clare radio producer.
