The news was shared by McSharry on Friday morning (29 October) via a message on Twitter.

"After eleven years on RTÉ 2FM, the time has come for me to move on", wrote McSharry.

"I'd like to thank RTÉ for the time I spent as part of the organisation, and particularly for the support it offered me around my illness in 2014 and 2015."

"I relished having the opportunity to play and support emerging Irish artists on the new music show I presented for five years, and look forward to seeing 2fm's continued support of Irish music from the outside.

"I am especially grateful for the opportunity over the last two years to create a talk show I'm really proud of. It was an immense privilege to be a part of people's lives during such a difficult time for us as a society, and I will never forget it.

"Thank you so much for all the listeners for your continued support,  you have made my career so far. I'm nowhere near finished yet, so hope you'll all join me in my next chapter", she concluded.

McSharry started with RTÉ 2FM in 2010 and hosted multiple shows across the weeks, most recently on the weekends between 9am and 10am.

She faced a bout with breast cancer between 2014 and 2015, and described her experience in her autobiography, 'Fat Chance: My Life in Ups, Downs, and Crisp Sandwiches".
