With a new year comes change, and that’s exactly what’s happening for former Ireland AM presenter Aidan Cooney.

Yes, the radio host has decided to leave his breakfast show to host a new weekend programme on Q102.

Aidan made the switch to co-host breakfast with Venetia Quik following his exit from Virgin Media.

The news comes amid a schedule shake-up for the station, which will now see Liam Coburn step in to present with Venetia.

The shake-up happens as Ryan Tubridy joins to host mid-mornings from Virgin Radio in London, which will also see current 10am presenter Andy Preston moving to Drive.

While Aidan will now host his own programme on Sundays between 12pm and 3pm.

Previously commenting on the change, Aidan said: “Much as I love being on the radio, this nonsense of getting up while the rest of Dublin sleeps just has to stop! I want my sleep time back.

“It’s been a real blast to serve weekday Breakfast with Venetia for the past few years, and I want to thank her and all our listeners for putting up with me.

“I will now be moving to weekends on Q102 and look forward to being a part of a brand new FeelGood weekend for Dublin.

I can’t wait to get started,” he added.

Another change for the station will see Ryan Tubridy host a dedicated Irish weekend show each Sunday, with The Ryan Tubridy Show airing from 10am to 12pm on Sundays on Q102 in Dublin, 96FM in Cork, LMFM, and Live 95 in Limerick, starting this Sunday, January 7.
