The Casey Factor


Former presidential hopeful Peter Casey

Laura Slattery, in The Irish Times, reports:

Peter Casey, the candidate in October’s presidential election, is recording a series of “individual reports” for Newstalk, the radio station owned by Denis O’Brien.

However, a spokesman denied that he was being given his own regular show or that he was a potential replacement for the weekend slot vacated by George Hook.

Mr Casey, who finished second in the presidential election with 23 per cent of the vote, is understood to be authoring several 15-20 minute segments for the Communicorp station, which will run across its main weekday shows.

      He’s brutal. That Late Late Show interview was execrable–both he and Ryan were appalling, for different reasons.
