One of the worst offenders is NewsSquawk's Saturday morning crew. They were doing OK with Roisin Ingle who sounds like she might be a bot of fun. But then they inflict the likes of Sophie Whoever on some kind of cultural programme, and now the truly awful Claire Thingie on Morning Blend (?!) with a totally retooled-for-the-noughties "young" posh Dort/SCD/D4 accent.euroboy said:The other Radio and TV stations, especially the Dublin stations, seem to be worst affected. FM104, Newstalk all have presenters with this painful quasi high speed Irish-American nasal accent. TV3, its nighly news presenters, esp that Fitzpatrick lady who has this grating high pitched accent. I often wonder why she is allowed to present the nightly news, its high pitched, often nasal and very sharp. But it is not all women, most of the men on private radio all sound like 2fm Djs.
