Speaking after the appointment, Beat CEO Gabrielle Cummins said;

“I am very proud of our constant concern to offer young talents an opportunity to shine on the airwaves.

“Michelle Heffernan has done an outstanding job at Beat for several years, attracting large audiences on her weekend show and the documentaries she produced for Beat have sparked important conversations among our target demographic. I’m thrilled that Michelle now joins Niall Power, Shonagh Lyons, Dave Cronin and Darren Rice in Beat’s prime-time weekday lineup.

“When Kirsten won the International Rose of Tralee in 2018, her natural talent was evident and we can’t wait to hear her develop her broadcasting skills on Beat.

“Megan O’Regan Byrne was originally part of Beat’s popular promotion team, the Beat Fleet. She then moved on to presenting weekend shifts and now we’re delighted she’s sharing the role of takeover presenter with Kirsten while honing her creative skills on Beat’s solutions team.

Michelle, Kirsten and Megan join the strong team of presenters already established on Beat; including Shonagh Lyons, Orla Rapple and Jessica Martin.
