24.03.17 – The Nicky Byrne Show Broadcast

Thanks to OLAY Total Effects, Nicky and Jenny held a competition where a mom was able to WIN a very special prize: A broadcast of The Nicky Byrne Show from her home! Congratulations to winner, Kieva! The show’s team went to Blackrock Co Lout and had a ball with Kieva, her family and friends!

One of today’s guests was Dundalk FC Manager, Stephen Kenny, who complimented Nicky on his Leeds United days. He got to see him play back in the day, saying that he was a very athletic and talented goalkeeper. 🙂

One of the show’s highlights came when Nicky and Jenny took on the Weekly Quiz and Nicky got his champion title and clock back. Well done!

Band, Third Smoke, also kept everyone company by playing some songs.

The Nicky Byrne Show: Behind The Scenes

A couple of weeks ago, Rachael Kane went to The Nicky Byrne Show studio to see how the magic happened. She shared a great article on Buzz.ie about her experience. Read it below:

“The beast has to be fed every day.” that’s how Zbyszek Zalinski describes his job as producer of 2FM’s The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene, going live across the nation for three hours every weekday and attracting a listenership of over 130,000. He, fellow producer Caroline Clarke (they alternate days), Lorraine Dunne (broadcast coordinator) and Amanda Fennelly (assistant producer) are the engine that drives the busy programme.

I went behind the scenes at RTE Radio Centre in Donnybrook to see what really happens on the show. In the pre-show production meeting, the team runs through what’s coming up over the following three hours. Although the broadcast is music heavy and banter filled, it still takes serious fodder to keep an audience satisfied. Then we head to the studio where the Breakfast Republic team (Jennifer Maguire, Bernard O’Shea and Keith Walsh) bail out and the next squad sit in their still warm seats. Seconds later, Nicky and Jenny are on air.
