Colette Sexton of the Sunday Business Post reports that Cooper - host of The Last Word on Today FM - has reportedly already signed his deal to front the show, with Newstalk presenter Yates to follow suit next week.

The show broadcasts four nights a week on TV3. Cooper and Yates will host two shows a week together, and one each separately.

The final episode of Tonight with Vincent Browne aired last month. It had been a crucial part of the TV3 evening schedule since 2007.
