LMFM Announces New Loose Talk Presenter

LMFM Radio has announced that ‘Loose Talk’, which is a former winner of the PPI Local Radio Programme Of The Year, will return to the air next Monday with a new presenter, Michael Reade, at the helm.
Announcing the return of the Current Affairs programme to the autumn schedule, the station’s Programme Controller, Eamonn Doyle said: “Following the departure of Paul McGuire to RTÉ, we were determined to find a presenter who would be capable of taking on local, national, and international issues in the pulsating manner which our audience has become accustomed to.”
Reade, formerly of Midlands Radio 3, Tipp FM, and Independent Network News, is a native of Dublin and has over twenty-year’s experience on-air on both Irish and European radio stations. The appointment follows much speculation over who would get the position, and Doyle continued by saying: “Michael is a polished broadcaster and a talented interviewer. The research team have been in place on this programme for several years and we believe our listeners will be pleasantly surprised with the fresh approach that Michael is taking with the programme.”
On taking up his new position with LMFM Radio, Reade said: “I look forward to working with the talented ‘Loose Talk’ team. We will continue to provide a platform for debate and we will facilitate the views of local people on local and global issues. Loose Talk will be unique in Louth/Meath as our brief is to cover the matters of importance to our local audience. In time people will judge my own performance and I hope they will see me as inquisitive and intent on getting answers.”
