GAVAN REILLY HAS been named as the new political correspondent at TV3.

Reilly, formerly of TheJournal.ie, will now be responsible for the station’s daily political and current affairs coverage on the recently rebranded 3News.

He leaves Today FM, where he had served as the political correspondent and regular stand-in for Matt Cooper on The Last Word and Neil Delamere on The Sunday Best.

He had also recently been appointed political correspondent at Newstalk.

The move from Marconi House to Ballymount comes after the resignation of long-standing political editor Ursula Halligan last month.

Viewers of TV3 will be familiar with Reilly from his stints on Tonight with Vincent Browne and Ireland AM.

Mick McCaffrey, head of 3News, said the station was “delighted” to hire Reilly.

Everyone at TheJournal.ie wishes their former teammate all the best in his new role – and for his impending nuptials later this month.
