Tommy Martin has decided to hang up his boots and leave Saturday and Sunday AM, with next weekend being his last on the show.

The Donegal native has been a key member of weekend AM since it launched in 2015, but now plans to move on, focusing on other projects within TV3 when it’s rebranded as Virgin Media later this month.

Tommy will be heavily involved in their sports station, when they launch this autumn.

Speaking of his departure, he said, “As mentioned on this morning’s show to great national mourning, I’m stepping away from Saturday AM & Sunday AM after next weekend to focus on presenting live football on Virgin Media TV (the new name for TV3) & new Virgin Sport channel, which I’m really looking forward to.”

“After 3 brilliant years, with a ridiculous amount of craic, I will really miss the team and viewers of Saturday AM and Sunday AM. It’s been a great show to work on. Especially the beer tasting.”

We wish him the best of luck with his new endeavours!
