Mario Rosenstock will host a brand new radio show on Today FM
"I’m looking forward to getting stuck in."
It has just been announced that Mario Rosenstock has landed a new Sunday radio show on Today FM.
The veteran radio presenter and gifted impressionist, who is known to listeners from the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show, is set to host Mario’s Sunday Roast for two hours every week, starting next month.
The news of Rosenstock's new show comes just days after radio host Nadine O’Regan revealed her Sunday night show, Songs in the Key of Life, had been cancelled after two years.
I am very sorry to say that my beloved show Songs in the Key of Life is no more. Little statement here:https://t.co/9QNK8GfJzt

O'Regan had been at the helm of alternative music stations Phantom 105.2 and TXFM before they were taken off the air last year.
Rosenstock commented on the job change on Wednesday morning.
“For 20 years, I’ve been looking at life through the eyes of lots of different characters from Enda Kenny to Michael D. to Miriam O’Callaghan and that’s been my filter, but the one person that I never examined stories through, is me!"
"I’m looking forward to getting stuck in. I’ve recently presented some TV as myself and really enjoyed the experience. I’d like to think that, after 20 years here, I know what the Today FM listener enjoys and I look forward to giving them just that," he concluded.
Today FM also announced on Wednesday that the Sunday Business Show is no longer, opting for podcasts from now on.
Today FM DJ Declan Pierce is also set to host a three hour music programme in his slot on Sunday afternoons.
Pierce takes over from Hector, who will be working quite consistently with TG4 over the summer, to present a three hour music programme on Sunday afternoons from 4pm - 7pm.
The Sunday schedule will also see The Very Best of The Ian Dempsey Show from 7am-8am and Alison Curtis’ Weekend Breakfast show gain an hour, now running from 8am-11am.
Ed Smith’s alternative music show Ed’s Songs of Praise will also gain an hour and air from 7pm-10pm.
Phil Cawley continues his three hour music and chat show from 1pm - 4pm, while Kelly-Anne Byrne’s The Beat Goes On also remains in its current Sunday time-slot, from 10pm - 12am and on Saturdays from 9pm - 12am.
The Sunday Business Show and O'Regan's Songs in the Key of Life will air for the last time on Sunday July 1.
