    Look at the state of Fine Gael. They successfully brought Fianna Fail back to popularity.
    Following the biggest crash in recent memory FG needed Labour, one season later they are almost neck and neck with Fianna Fail. Talk about failure. I suppose keeping out SF is the only game that matters.

    I agree. Whenever Williams comes on two words spring to mind.

    The first is ar$e.

    The second is hole.

    I propose an all female radio station called MNAW in homage to American radio call signs where every single worker from reception to in front of the microphone is female, and we'll see what it's listenership figures are like, and I am only half joking with that.

    What in earth is going on at Newstalk that female voices are being avoided during peak listening hours?

    When thejournal.ie inquired, Newstalk wouldn't supply a comment. Seems very odd indeed surely?

    'You won't hear a woman's voice, and it's not acceptable': What are Irish radio stations doing about gender balance?
    If there ratings are crap, then they are of no use

    Listening to David Quinn and Ruth Coppinger on Sean O'Rourke on this issue.

    It's extremely rare that I'm on the side of David Quinn, but Ruth Coppinger has just gone nuclear.

    Listening to Quinn now.

    Quinn actually claimed that the all male lineup is "about ratings".

    They're a two bookends.

    ... though it should be said that (happily) Quinn represents no one and (sadly) Coppinger is a TD.

    Do you serious think that if some Female Presenters were capable of getting better listening figures than Males then they would not be on the Air .

    Do People understand how capitalism Works . Do you understand how important the bottom line is to business people .
