Eamon Dunphy has announced that he is to quit his Today FM show ‘The Last Word’.
It is believed that Dunphy will continue to present the show until the end of November. Although he has stated that he will be leaving Today FM on good terms, insiders suggest that Dunphy was not happy that approaches were made to Charlie Bird of RTÉ to front the show before the station agreed to a new €400,000 per year contract in the summer. It is most likely, however, that his punishing work schedule contributed to the decision. Dunphy is said to be in talks with TV Three about presenting a new Friday night chat show.
