Bryan Dobson to co-anchor his final Six One News bulletin this evening


Tonight, television viewers across Ireland will tune in to see Bryan Dobson deliver the Six One News headlines one last time.

After 21 years as co-anchor, the legendary broadcaster has set his sights on Ireland's radio waves where he will join co-presenters Rachael English, Dr Gavin Jennings and Audrey Carville as a main anchor of RTÉ Radio One's Morning Ireland from next week.

Not one to make a “big fuss”, Bryan has said he will celebrate his new career move by heading out for a meal with co-presenter Sharon Ni Bheoláin, followed by a “few drinks” with their colleagues.

According to reports, an RTÉ insider said: “Bryan was reluctant to make a big deal about leaving because, the way he sees it, he's only moving across the room.”

“He would be happy enough with a low-key affair.”

Bryan's replacement is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, but in the meantime it's understood a rotating schedule of news presenters will fill the role.

A number of presenters have already been tipped to succeed Dobson, including Ray Kennedy, David McCullough and Keelin Shanley.

Farewell Dobbo, you'll be missed.
