Donagh McKeown on Radio

Copy of Copy of Poetry Emotion Ireland C

Donagh has been broadcasting for over 30 years as a presenter of music, then news and magazine programmes throughout that time with top stations like Downtown Radio, BBC Hereford & Worcester & BBC Radio Ulster, as a sports journalist. He has also broadcast north and south of the border in Northern Sound, in the North with Townland Radio, Mid 106, BCR, Iur FM and in recent times with Belfast 89 and Armagh City Radio and spent a couple of years broadcasting in California with KKUP FM in Santa Clara and KXSF FM in San Francisco. His "dulcet, nay mellifluous tones" have carried people through sleepless nights on adult contemporary music shows, through day time chat and feature programmes, and he has a wide experience as a podcast maker.  His interviewing skills are legendary, at least in his home apartment in the North Armagh town of Lurgan. He is currently presenting/producing a daily radio programme on www.gir.ie
