Although the announcement came as a shock to many, Stephen admitted it has been on his mind for a while, continuing he said, “This was something I had originally in my mind for 2020 but the world changed quite quickly there for a
minute. Regardless, the last 12 months especially have been my favourite.

“I want to say a massive thank you to the countless people who have worked to bring some of the biggest names in film and music to the show, it’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and beyond that making so many long lasting friendships. I’ve been very proud to have been the first home for voices like Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi, Lizzo and more to talk on Irish radio.

“I’ll have some news soon but beyond that I can’t wait to have time off for the first time since I was in Transition Year. Finally, thank you to all the listeners every week, radio has been around a long time but these last two years have more than ever indicated its worth and it would be nothing without you tuning in and what you bring to it.

“For the first time in a really long time I’m very excited for the future and what this brings. More on that soon though. I AM SO EXCITED, Stephen x,” he concluded.

Wow, we can’t wait to see what’s next for Stephen!
