26 Aug 2011 :
Kathryn Thomas at IFTA 2011
‘Winning-Streak’ presenter Kathryn Thomas is set to host Screentime ShinAwil’s latest series ‘The Voice of Ireland’. The show is based on ‘The Voice’ format which was originally created by John de Mol’s Talpa Media (Big Brother) and has been successfully broadcasts in Holland and the US.

Kathryn Thomas’ previous presenting jobs include a long running RTÉ travel show ‘No Frontiers’, which she fronted for ten years and ‘Operation Transformation’. Kathryn also won an IFTA in 2008 for TV Personality of the Year. She will be joined on ‘The Voice of Ireland’ by Eoghan McDermott who will be the backstage presenter on the talent series. Eoghan McDermott currently presents radio on London’s Xfm and has had presenting slots for TG4’s ‘Pop4’, BBC NI’s ‘Imeall Geal’ and TRTÉ’s ‘Frenemies’.

Executive producer on ‘The Voice of Ireland’ will be ShinAwil’s Larry Bass (Masterchef) and Series Producer and Director is Lynda McQuaid (Fame: The Musical). The series offers a unique twist on traditional talent shows, with celebrity coaches picking a team of singers sight unseen, based purely on the quality of their voice. They will then battle against each other. The winner will be decided following a series of live finals and will be offered a recording contract with Universal Music.

The application process will be opened to the public following a photocall next week and filming for the first phase of casting is expected to begin in October. The four celebrity coaches will be revealed at a later date.
