Paul Collins announces departure from Today FM after 22 years
“The time is right to exit stage left.”
Paul Collins, well known for his coverage of sport on Today FM for two decades, has announced his departure from the station.
In a statement on Monday morning, Collins said that “the time was right to exit stage left and focus on further developing my own video content business”.
Tipperary native Collins has been at Today FM for over 20 years, starting off as a daily news editor for two years before moving into sport. His voice will be very familiar to those who tuned into Today FM on early weekday mornings, as well as on the Championship Sunday show on big GAA weekends in recent years.
Collins paid tribute to Today FM listeners and a number of colleagues past and present in his statement, singling out Ian Dempsey and Mario Rosenstock “for the laughs each and every day together”.
