Legendary Q102 Presenter Aidan Cooney moves to new weekend slot

Q102, Dublin’s feel-good music station, today announces that Breakfast Presenter Aidan Cooney will move to a new weekend slot on the station. After four years of early mornings, Aidan has decided that he has had enough of the 5am starts and has chosen to move to the weekend schedule.


Q102 provides a vibrant soundtrack to the daily lives of Dubliners aged 35 and over. Currently, legendary presenter Aidan hosts Q102 Breakfast alongside partner-in-crime Venetia Quick each weekday morning. Aidan has previously worked across a string of Q102 shows including Afternoons, Mid Mornings and Call Cooney each weekday evening.


We’re so excited for Aidan to join our weekend team, alongside the likes of Johnny Bowe and Lynsey Dolan, bringing his hilarious personality to a fun-filled 12-3pm slot each Sunday.  The presenter has lots of ideas planned for his new schedule, making it the perfect way to spend your fun-filled weekend!


Aidan Cooney comments: “Much as I love being on the radio, this nonsense of getting up while the rest of Dublin sleeps just has to stop! I want my sleep time back. It’s been a real blast to serve weekday Breakfast with Venetia for the past few years, and I want to thank her and all our listeners for putting up with me. I will now be moving to weekends on Q102 and look forward to being a part of a brand new FeelGood weekend for Dublin. I can’t wait to get started.”


Scott Williams, Wireless Group Content Director says: “I want to acknowledge the broadcasting legend that is Aidan Cooney. He has served Q102 well over many years right across the schedule. We understand that he wants to get some sleep in the New Year and are delighted that Aidan will remain a part of Q102 on his new weekend show.”
