HE STARTED OUT as a researcher, and on Monday Anton Savage will step up to the mic for his own primetime show on TodayFM.

The station announced earlier this month that the presenter will step into D’Arcy’s shoes after Ray decided to return to RTÉ.

The three-hour Anton Savage Show will kick off at 9am on Monday 26 January, and TodayFM says that it will be “fun, cheerful and well informed”, with a mix of celebrity guests, human interest topics and “discussions that make you think”.

A “great honour”

Anton, who’s 37, said that the new show is a “great honour”, and that he and his team have big plans for their slot.

Today FM said that the announcement of Savage’s appointment prompted “a massively positive response from listeners”.
