After 21 years presenting RTÉ’s Six One News, the broadcaster will become a permanent presenter on the radio station’s flagship morning show at the end of October.

In addition to presenting Morning Ireland, Dobson will continue to be a presenter for RTÉ’s television coverage of special state events, such as the upcoming Budget 2018.

Speaking about the move, Dobson said:

“I will greatly miss Six One News, but there comes a time to move on and grasp new opportunities. I am hugely looking forward to joining the Morning Ireland team and playing my part in serving our listeners.

“Over many years presenting Six One News, it has been a privilege to work alongside so many talented and committed colleagues to deliver accurate, relevant and engaging news to our large audience.

I thank our viewers for their loyalty and my colleagues for their professionalism and cheerfulness.

Dobson will join co-presenters Rachael English, Dr Gavin Jennings and Audrey Carville as a main anchor of the RTÉ Radio One programme.

He joined RTÉ in 1987 as a reporter with RTE Radio One’s This Week programme. Later that year, he was appointed RTÉ’s business correspondent, as well as presenting the television business programme Marketplace.

In 1991, he became a presenter of RTÉ’s One O’Clock News and later moved to present the Nine News programme before being appointed anchor of the Six One News in 1996.

Dobson will join the Morning Ireland team from 30 October.
