Ronan Keating makes shock exit from Magic Radio Breakfast


Ronan Keating has shocked fans by announcing his departure from the Magic Radio Breakfast show with Harriet Scott after seven years.

Speaking to listeners on the Breakfast show this week, Ronan shared that he would be stepping down from presenting early mornings at the end of July.

“It’s been very difficult for me to come to this conclusion, and to make this decision,” the presenter revealed.

“I have loved every single minute, this has not been an easy decision at all. I came on board as you know [Harriet] for a year, maybe two and I’ve loved the job so much that I’ve stayed here for seven,” he added.

“We’ve had an amazing time and we’ve been through some incredibly emotional times with people at home. Those two years that the world changed. It was an honour to be able to be in people’s homes and communicate with them like we did.

“So yeah, although I won’t be waking the nation up anymore with you [Harriet], I look forward to, I guess reconnecting with what I did before this – you know getting back to my music and touring.”

Continuing on he said: “Even though I’ve been doing it, trying to do both together has not been easy at times. And getting back to being with my family – you know doing school runs and those things that I’ve missed out on, waking up with my wife in the morning, you know?

“I know it sounds ridiculous but it’s really important and I’ve missed that.”

Ronan then went on to thank his team and co-host for all their work over the past seven years.

This news comes following a cryptic message, Ronan wrote to his Instagram about his wife Storm just a mere few weeks ago.

“For you my warrior today and every day,” the post began.

“A challenge ahead but your strength blows my mind. With you every step. Love you baby,” he concluded.
