Tone quits 2FM

One of the top radio personalities in the country has shocked 2FM by handing in his notice. Tony Fenton, whose Drivetime show is the second highest rated in Ireland, will present his last show on the station on March 6th.
Tony has been with RTÉ’s national pop station for 18 years and is leaving with the blessing of station head John Clarke, with whom he also shares a pirate radio past.
In an interview with the Sunday World, Tony confirms that he’s had a couple of radio offers, one from inside Ireland, the other from outside the country.
“I need a fresh challenge. The two offers have really excited me,” he said. “I feel now is the time to leave 2FM while I’m still on top.”
Another 2FM presenter, Dusty Rhodes , had already announced that he was quitting his ‘Most Wanted’ programme in the summer to concentrate on other business interests.
