‘From Hard Politics To Soft Chat’


RTÉ host and Sunday Independent deputy editor Brendan O’Connor

Further to Vincent Browne presenting his final Tonight with Vincent Browne show last night

In the Phoenix magazine

It’s reported:

“..TV3 heads Bill Malone and Aoife Stokes have been negotiating with Sunday Independent and RTÉ host on The Saturday Night Show, Brendan O’Connor, to take over the show for several weeks now.

“…TV3 wants to transform its nightly show from hard politics to a softer chat show and they believe O’Connor’s Saturday night show as well as his Cutting Edge programmes equip him for the job.”

        me too. Had the misfortune to drive him several times, as he travelled on private business using his RTE taxi vouchers. Seriously up his own bottom. Had a way of making u feel almost worthless. Utter utter twit.

          Had the displeasure of dealing with him myself once or twice in a previous line of work. He’s not the easiest man to deal with. Not a fan.

          disappointing. I always thought he’d be sound enough in a narky aul bollocks kind of way

        She seems like a very nice person, but a bit of a dryballs, to me.

        1. mildred st. meadowlark

          I dunno. I reckon she’d be ok once she got into the swing of things. She’s one of the few who seems to really knows her stuff.

          I’d rather her than BOC.

    Thank goodness there are no lady people being suggested. We don’t want late night chat on the cheap.

  2. Fully Keen

    Brain damage shows. Spin and ego and desperation. Worse than Fox News opinion piece broadcasting. Adding nothing but negativity to the world. Like yer Ma.

  3. Happy Molloy

    would this mean we would lose the Cutting Edge seeing that it’s RTE?

    I enjoy that show

  4. Andrew

    Cheerleader for the bubble Smarty Mc Ballsy O’Connor. Bertie Ahern fan and general smartarse. The public gets what the public wants. As it’s TV3 they are welcome to take him off the taxpayer funded RTE

  5. Happy Molloy

    I know he’s not popular around here but Ivan Yates would be good at the job. He’s gone at challenging people and knows when to have the craic

    1. Topsy

      Yates. Another pompous, egotistical, narcissistic, bankrupt, A failure who ran away twice from the country, left his creditors destitute but kept his ministerial pension. Now he has all the answers. PUKE.

      1. Happy Molloy

        leaving aside your contempt for people who become bankrupt (I assume so you’re a fan of Ireland’s archaic bankruptcy laws), he might still be a good host though, no?

    2. Frilly Keane

      The same age bracket : as in they’re both pensioners
      T’would seem The Yellow Blue Shirt belly is the perfect successor

  6. Peter Dempsey

    Would be great to see John McGuirk present. He’s been on it often enough and the shrieking lefties (some of whom have blue hair) would have a fit.
