Louise McSharry has revealed that she will return to RTE 2FM with a brand new show this September, and we're over the moon for the radio star.
While she was keeping very tight-lipped about her new gig, the popular DJ hinted that she will be moving away from the evening slot lifestyle.
The 2FM host, who is off on maternity leave, told the Irish Daily Mirror: “I am going back in September to do a new show.
“I can’t really say too much more about it yet but I am really excited about it. It won’t be in the evening.”
It was recently announced that her friend Tara Stewart would be permanently taking over her regular weekday music show from 7pm until 10pm, as part of the new summer schedule for the radios station.
Louise conceded that she initially felt extremely protective over the slot, Louise is convinced that Tara is the best gal for the job.
“A million percent, Tara is exactly the right person, she has her finger on the pulse when it comes to music and everything else," she explained.
“And you need someone, if you are doing a new music show, that it is not an effort for them, where they are naturally clued in and she is 100 percent that person.”
The mum-of-two is adjusting to family life with one-month-old Ted and two-year-old Sam, and hasn't even had time to listen to the new schedule;
“Not really, I’ve heard a teeny tiny bit of it and I just haven’t been listening to the radio at all at the minute."
She expressed her excitement for Tara's radio career taking off;
“But I am so excited and Tara is starting her show and I am super excited about that, myself and Tara are great friends and obviously I feel protective over that slot because I was in it for five years but I couldn’t be happier for someone to take it over.”
Louise's husband Gordon Spierin has been helping out at home since Ted was born.
"My husband got the two weeks paternity leave and then he is taking two weeks annual leave as well so to be honest it has been amazing to have him and it has made the whole thing so much easier."
She pressed the need for equality in the home after the birth of a child;
“I know the statutory paternity leave is increasing to four weeks soon and I am just like the sooner that happens the better and the more that happens the better because it just means we have much more equal roles in everything in the house, and with the kids and everything.
“And it is a great comfort to me and puts much less pressure on me to kind of get everything together quickly."
We can't wait to hear her brand new show this September, you go girl.
