There’s A New Face Taking Over The Saturday Night Slot on RTÉ

The show will kick off this autumn.

It has been reported that Ray D’Arcy will take over the Saturday night slot on RTÉ this autumn after Brendan O’Connor confirmed to viewers last night that The Saturday Night Show will come to an end in May.

According to reports, D’Arcy will front a new Saturday evening entertainment show which will kick off this autumn, while O’Connor will return in 2016 with a new show which is reported to be a weekday slot.


D’Arcy moved to RTÉ last year from Today FM and it had been speculated that he would return to their TV schedule.

O’Connor stated after the news broke last night that he is “very excited about inventing a newer, even better show.”
