Wil­liams leaves ‘New­stalk Break­fast’ af­ter two years

The Irish Times - Business - - BUSINESS | NEWS - LAURA SLAT­TERY

Paul Wil­liams is leav­ing New­stalk’s break­fast show af­ter two years and will present his fi­nal pro­gramme to­mor­row.

Wil­liams, best known as a crime jour­nal­ist and au­thor, said he had re­cently made “the tough de­ci­sion” to leave the show, which he de­scribed as “a great ex­pe­ri­ence”.

New­stalk, which is owned by De­nis O’Brien’s Com­mu­ni­corp Me­dia, thanked him for his con­tri­bu­tion to the sta­tion and said he would con­tinue to be a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor.

The broad­caster was part of a ro­tat­ing line-up of three pre­sen­ters in­tro­duced in 2016 as re­place­ments for Ivan Yates and Chris Donoghue.

Co­lette Fitz­patrick, who was part of the 2016 break­fast team, left New­stalk last year to con­cen­trate on her role as a news pre­sen­ter for Vir­gin Me­dia Tele­vi­sion, leav­ing the reg­u­lar duo of Wil­liams and Shane Cole­man.

New­stalk Break­fast has 121,000 lis­ten­ers, ac­cord­ing to Joint Na­tional Lis­ten­er­ship Re­search (JNLR) fig­ures. New­stalk said it would an­nounce a re­place­ment for Wil­liams in due course.
