LOTTIE RYAN WILL present her first ever radio show on 2fm tomorrow morning.

The daughter of the late Gerry Ryan will host ‘The Early, Early Breakfast Show with Lottie Ryan’, which will air Saturday and Sunday mornings from 6am.

She previously worked for the radio station as the showbiz reporter for The Colm Hayes show and in the same position for RTÉ’s live afternoon show The Daily Show from 2010 to 2012.

Commenting today, Ryan said she was “thrilled” to be getting her own show and joining the new schedule.

“It’s very exciting times ahead as 2fm evolves and I’m delighted to be a part of the team,” she said. “Whether you’re an early riser or only coming in from the night before – this will be the station you’ll want to listen to early mornings!”

Head of 2fm, Dan Healy said Ryan has a “strong and colourful personality” and “it’s not off the ground she licked that!”
