Eddy Temple-Morris gets Virgin Radio Anthems Drive as Tubridy arrives from Ireland

Virgin Radio’s mid-morning host Eddy Temple-Morris is moving to Virgin Radio Anthems Drivetime to make way for the arrival of Ryan Tubridy in the new year.

Eddy will be on-air from 2pm till 6pm weekdays and continue to host Sunday Special documentaries for Virgin Radio UK, and cover on the main service.

Eddy said: “The Virgin Radio team are the loveliest bunch of people I’ve ever worked with and I’m truly delighted to have the opportunity to stay, for the Sunday special programmes I love so much, to be available when daytime presenters are sick or sunbathing, and most importantly to help build something at Virgin Radio Anthems.”

Virgin Radio UK Content Director Mike Cass added: “Eddy Temple-Morris is simply a brilliant broadcaster, and totally gets the Virgin Radio ethos.

“His depth of knowledge means his documentary work with the Sunday Specials speak for themselves, and I’m delighted that he’s also taking on a new live show on Virgin Radio Anthems, as we develop and grow the station as the destination for legends of the 60s, 70s and 80s.”

Ryan Tubridy’s new show will also be simulcast in Dublin on Q102, where the entire weekday schedule has had a shake-up to accommodate the new show.
