Confirmed: Vincent Browne is stepping down from his TV3 show

The station says Browne is doing so for personal reasons.

TV3 HAS CONFIRMED that Vincent Browne will be stepping down as presenter of the Tonight programme from the end of July.

The veteran journalist’s decision comes after 10 years at the helm of one of the country’s most influential current affairs programmes.

The station says Browne is doing so for personal reasons. Browne has not made any comment on the matter.

Bill Malone, director of programming at TV3 said:

“Vincent has made an extraordinary contribution to Irish journalism and to Irish broadcasting. As the presenter of the Tonight Show, Vincent encapsulated the mood of the nation during unprecedented economic and political turmoil. His commitment to highlighting inequality and injustices in Irish life has been unwavering over his journalistic career”.

“TV3 would like to take this opportunity to thank Vincent for his contribution to the station and to wish him the very best.”
