Nicky on Tubridy 2FM

nicky and ryanMay 2013 saw Nicky filling in for radio presenter Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ’s 2fm. Nicky fronted the morning show while Ryan was given a well deserved day off, after celebrating his 40th birthday.

“It was a huge compliment to be asked to fill in for Ryan. He’s one of our best and well-known broadcasters, and it was a massive challenge to fill his boots”.

But Nicky jumped at the chance, saying, “I really didn’t have to be asked twice when 2FM approached me to fill in for Ryan Tubridy”.

He enjoyed the experience hugely, “Everybody was so welcoming and the response was great. It’s definitely something I’d love to do again in the future – maybe even on a more permanent basis”.

It is not the first time Nicky has presented on Radio. In 2010, he also presented 2fm’s Celebrity Sunday for 3 consecutive weeks. Of the experience back then, he said he was, “totally blown away by the response my show had on Twitter, email and through the 2fm website”.

His two hour live slot on the Turbidy morning show went off without a hitch – bar Nicky saying ‘Goodnight’ at the end of the programme at 11am!
