EARLIER THIS MONTH, Today FM announced that Dermot and Dave would be taking over Anton Savage’s mid-morning slot on the station’s schedule.

Speculation had been rife since as to who would then take on the lunchtime gig, and this morning we got our answer:

Yes, popular Dublin comedian Al Porter will be on from 12-2.30pm every weekday.

In a statement released by the station today, Al seemed delighted with the new job:

Today is a huge day for me! I grew up listening to radio and anytime I’ve been into Today FM, whether it’s to talk to Ian, Matt or Dermot & Dave, who have been interviewing me since I was a kid, I’ve enjoyed each and every visit!
I’ve come to realise that it’s such a personal and intimate thing to have a relationship with listeners and over the past 12 months I think people have gotten to know me better. I brought people into my home at the end of last year and now I am looking forward to being in THEIR homes every day, not as a comedian but as a friend

His new show kicks off on Monday February 13th.

And sure here he is with the microphone and all:

Raring to go.
