And while it was certainly a teary goodbye, we didn’t have to wait too long to find out who would be stepping into their roles.
Yes, we have two fab brand new hosts!
And we couldn’t be more delighted!
Brian Dowling and Katja Mia will become the new, permanent presenters of The Six O’Clock Show.
TV presenter and radio host Brian Dowling has guest presented across programmes on Virgin Media Television previously. While Katja Mia joined the Ireland AM Weekend team last year.
So they’re no strangers to the station!
Speaking about his new role as co-host, Brian said: “I‘m absolutely delighted to be joining The Six O’Clock Show team permanently. I’m such a big fan of the show and have had a blast guest presenting on the Six Sofa, so I can’t wait to get stuck into presenting each weeknight, and with such a pro Katja joining me.”
Speaking about her new role as co-host, Katja said: “I’m delighted to become the new co-host on ‘The Six O’Clock Show’ and join such a fantastic on-air team. I’ll miss the ‘Ireland AM’ team and my co-hosts Elaine and Martin, but I’ll be bringing everything I’ve learnt with me to my new presenting gig.”
The Six O’Clock Show airs weeknights at 6pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player.
