‘Prime Time’ reporter Keelin Shanley has been announced as the new presenter of RTÉ’s new morning news show.

The experienced reporter, who has fronted RTÉ shows for over 15 years, will present the new two-hour morning show starting in January.

Shanley, who has been at the fore of RTÉ’s investigative journalism for many years, most notably as a reporter on current affairs programme ‘Prime Time’, has worked across a number of platforms for the broadcaster, including fronting ‘The Consumer Show’ with Eddie Hobbs and writing the TV documentary ‘Ireland’s Teenage Criminals’ in 2004.

The journalist picked up an IFTA Award in 2004 for the ‘Prime Time’ investigation ‘Intellectual Disability’, and has won a National Media, a Law Society and a Radharc Award.

RTÉ’s new morning show will air in late January on weekday mornings from 9am to 11am. This puts it in direct competition with Ireland’s only other morning programme, TV3’s ‘Ireland AM’, which airs from 7am to 10am.

‘Ireland AM’, fronted by Mark Cagney, Sinead Desmond, Alan Hughes, Anna Daly and Aidan Cooney, is currently the number one watched breakfast show in the country, beating BBC and ITV in the ratings.

RTÉ’s new morning show will be the broadcaster’s first foray into breakfast television. The state broadcaster also announced that RTÉ’s current deputy foreign editor Anthony Murnane has been appointed programme editor.

The programme will be filmed in RTE's news studio in Donnybrook, and will be broadcast on RTÉ’s digital channel, RTÉ News Now, at the same time as RTÉ Television.
