“I remember when I first started in radio, someone once said to me ‘People don’t really like women on the radio’. I was like, ‘Sorry what?’, “ she told us.

“Traditionally, if you go back to the 60s, 70s, 80s it would have been a male voice you would have heard on the radio. But nowadays it’s very much 50/50 if not more.“

She has long praised her predecessor, Mairead Ronan, telling us: “Mairead has been my champion since day one. Even when I was just starting out on Today FM, she would always get me on the show to do this, that and the other.

“That continued on when I got the lunchtime show. She really got me going. We’re always in contact. She’s like a big sister to me.“

Good luck on your next adventure, Pamela.
