Brendan O’Connor to fill RTÉ’s Marian Finucane slot for the duration of January


Brendan O’Connor will host a temporary weekend show on RTÉ to replace the slot left vacant by the death of broadcaster Marian Finucane earlier this month.

The broadcaster confirmed that O’Connor will present a new programme called ‘Weekend on One’ on Radio 1 from 11am to 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays until the end of January.

O’Connor regularly presented Finucane’s show in her absence, particularly during the summer months.

RTE did not confirm what will happen when January concludes.
