Maybe FF had RTE recruit him so he could be silenced?

I don't think he'll appear on rte he'd be too honest in his criticism for their cosy cartel!!

Unless it's a different Eamon Keane he wrote for The Herald just this week?

Eamon Keane: Everyone is to blame except Bertie

The Irish Independent speculated in May that he was bound for RTÉ

Irish Independent: Rumours of RTE move for Keane
That's very interesting...
I can't find any other piece by Eamon Keane apart from that since March 2010 - but my search skills are pretty suspect. The May piece is out of date now, with Tubs gone to 2FM/John Murray on in the AM etc.
Anyone else know anything?

I wish he'd come back to radio, I think he's made for broadcasting.
I'd switch to whichever station he was on in a shot!

So would I. RTE could do with him in the mornings now,as present crowd are not good. There is a separate thread about this for some months now.

I'd rather not that he were on self-absorbed, PC, conformist, pro-government RTE. I think they'd sit on his individuality and curtail his tendency to talk straight. NewsTalk was a great platform for him and other interesting broadcasters like Damien Kiberd, Vincent Browne and David McWilliams.

Don't know what happened to explain his sudden departure from NewsTalk but he is a notoriously temperamental guy to work with so he could have just exploded one day.

He'd never fit in RTE. 4FM should try to recruit him. It'd put them on the map but maybe he got a pay off that prevents him from talking about his departure or joining another station for a period?

He'd be better than Marc Coleman on newstalks nighttime(10-12) midweek slot. Seems like a bit of a nightbird anyway.

Same here. He was the main reason I listened to Newstalk in the mornings/lunchtime. Lovely voice/accent too.

Jesus this channel is terrible. Round table debate after six though, that will give Eamon something to get his teeth back into again
