We couldn’t afford Dunphy say Newstalk

Daire O’Brien, programming manager for NewsTalk 106, has denied rumours that Eamon Dunphy will be joining the station, which is due to launch next month. “We’re a local station with local funding,” Daire told tonight’s Evening Herald. “If Eamon came up with an innovative way of paying his salary and leaving us with a profit, we’d be delighted to talk.”
