So the final week for the Vingina monologues? :) Wonder what special topics he will have on for the shows and will Enda Kenny, Drummed and that Greek chap finally turn up?

So the lead topics are:
Travellers.
Equality.
Gender stuff.
Immigration.
(Maybe even some politics and current affairs.)

So any idea who's taking over from Vinnie then, after he hosts his final show.

Say what we like about Vinnie - we'll miss him :) One of the few outstanding journalists of the last 40 years ( most of the rest of them are just hired liars to a man and woman), as editor of the current affairs magazine Magill he took on the establishment like no one else with reporters such as Gene Kerrigan etc.

You need to put equality in that list at least 6 more times...

Dobbo is on the move!


"RTÉ's Bryan Dobson is reportedly leaving the Six One news, writes Ciara Phelan.
Dobson, affectionately known as Dobbo will make an internal move to Morning Ireland as RTÉ are said to be in the process of a major 'shake-up' within the evening news.
Dobson who is currently an adjunctive professor at the University of Limerick has been presenting the Six One News since 1996." [Examiner]

Well, believe it or not, it appears from the tv3 schedules that Vinny himself is taking over. Next Monday ... it's


THE BEST OF TONIGHT WITH VINCENT BROWNE ...


I assume that, allowing for the usual 3 long ad breaks, this "special" will run for about 15 minutes. Big question is: how often will Rita appear?

Fret no more. Just for you, as you seem to be a big fan ... a singing Rita. Enjoy.

If they're going to talk about NAMA and the banking crisis, then they should have a member of the FF party on, as well as FG and Labour (if they can find one).

On the other hand, it would be nice to have it teased out by non-party experts so that we might get a clearer (and cleaner) view of the options which were available and the interference from the EU.

Yep but Vinnie's idea of an expert might just be someone from the poverty/charity industry or yet another member of the clueless commentariat ready with their "opinion".

At this late stage, it doesn't look as if we are going to get the panel before the show starts.
So some poverty/charity industry nobody, some member of the clueless commentariat, some FGer who drew the short straw, Shortall (joint leader of the Social Democrats) or something?
