THE HEAD OF RTÉ 2fm, John McMahon, is stepping down to take up a new role within the State broadcaster’s radio division.

RTÉ has confirmed this evening that McMahon has not sought a renewal of his contract having worked as head of the music station since 2009. He had previously been RTÉ’s first ever webmaster, setting up rte.ie in 1996.

“Running 2fm has been both challenging and rewarding. Working with the great 2fm presenters and production teams during my time as station head has made every day an entertaining one,” McMahon said in a statement today.

He is set to take role within RTÉ radio overseeing the introduction of a multi-channel audio production project which the broadcaster said will “centralise station sound and imaging on RTÉ Radio’s four fm and six digital radio stations”.

He will also be engaging in a number of programme projects on Radio 1 in a “senior production capacity”.

The station added that it would be appointing a new head of 2fm in the coming weeks.
