Radio Ratings: 2FM Increases Across all Shows

JNLR day is here and the numbers are in: The Nicky Byrne Show has gained 8,000 more listeners, giving them a total of 139,000 – Congratulations!

Dan Healy, head of RTÉ 2FM, said he was delighted with the performance of his channel as “a challenger brand.” He said it was over two years since a conscious move was made to go after a younger audience. The new policy meant 2FM lost its older listeners and figures were declining but now it has enjoyed back-to-back listenership growth.

He was delighted that Nicky’s show enjoyed significant audience growth and he attributed it to talent and hard work. “He’s a guy who probably doesn’t have to work, I assume, but he comes in with a massive work ethic,” he said. He praised Nicky’s fellow broadcaster on the show Jenny Greene and how both worked so well together since she joined him. “She didn’t like Westlife, she didn’t fancy him, so you’ve got a really interesting kind of chemistry there,” he quipped.

27.04.17 – The Nicky Byrne Show Broadcast

Big day on The Nicky Byrne Show! Nicky and Jenny broadcasted live from the 3Arena as part of the Junk Kouture Grand Final. There was a small Dancing With The Stars reunion, as Dayl Cronin and Ksenia Zsikhotska joined them in the roadcaster.

I have to say that one of the biggest highlights was the introduction to the FaceApp, where Nicky, Jenny and the show’s team transformed their faces to their older, younger and opposite sex versions! Check out Nicky’s picture below… Pretty crazy!

The broadcast ended on a high when they aired their interview with none other than The Cranberries!

Sunday Independent: How Nicky Stays Fit

Nicky was featured on the latest Sunday Independent, where he talked about the importance of staying fit, how it helps him and his essential tips! I added a scan of the full article, and you can check it out below:


“Most of my life, it was all about football but in the past 10 years, I’ve moved away from football and gotten really into weights and boxing“, said Nicky. He trains with “Padraig Murphy of Evolv Fitness in Blackrock and also in my own small gym at home. I try to stick to three sessions per week – sometimes it will be just two – but sometimes I will go through phases where it’s five times per week, mixing weights and boxing.”

Nicky’s secret weapon is exercise: “Exercise makes me feel good. I don’t just work out to get fit, I plan my goals in the gym. It’s a great place to think. While I’m in the gym, I’m thinking of fighting for the heavyweight boxing title, or singing in Madison Square Gardens, or presenting the biggest TV show in the world! I have the music up loud, sports on the TV, the top comes off and off I go! Basically, when I’m in my gym at home I feel invincible.”

His Top 3 Tips:

1. Commit to training at least three times per week and decide on the days.
2. Always include squats in one of your training sessions; it’s the best thing you can do. ‘Ass to grass’ to avoid knee injury.
3. Include boxing if you can; it’s great for cardio and for building confidence. Boxercise classes are a great option.

On today’s show, she explained the importance of respecting everyone’s preference of eating and why she doesn’t like to call herself vegan or a vegetarian – she’s just happy with how many benefits she’s gotten over making the best decision of her life.
