Neil Prendeville to leave Cork's 96FM

It is believed the presenter will be moving to rival station RedFM.

CORK 96FM PRESENTER Neil Prendeville is to leave the radio station, it has emerged this evening.

A source said Prendeville made the decision to quit the station because of a failure to come to an agreement on a new contract. It is believed that he will be moving to rival station RedFM.

The presenter’s name has been in the headlines before in the last couple of years over a number of controversies.

In 2010, was accused of exposing himself on an Aer Lingus flight. However no charges were brought against him following a garda investigation.

Two years ago, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland upheld a complaint about on-air monologue by Prendeville in which he said “we provide medical cards to Africans while Irish children go sick because their working parents can’t afford a doctor’s visit or prescription”.
