You may have heard a different voice on this morning’s Shaun Doherty (SD) show that's because one of Donegal’s top celebrities Noel Cunningham will replacing the show’s anchor Shaun Doherty, who is on annual leave, for a period of five days.

Noel is set to take the ropes for the next week and said he was honoured and looking forward to hosting the show.

This will be Noel’s first time anchoring for radio. He is well known for guest starring on TV3’s Ireland AM’s breakfast show, the Mini Show on RTE, his work with Harvey’s Point and its Cabaret, promoting the North West and the Wild Atlantic way and doing a tremendous amount of work for charities.

Speaking of Harvey’s Point Cabaret, Noel said that this was a highly popular show, which brings a string of well-established artists every year to perform in front of a large audience who can also enjoy the quality of service and the wonderful assortments of food served at the multi-award facility.

“The Cabaret is a great way to promote the North West and keep people coming back every year. It has become very much part of the Donegal scene. The Shaun Doherty Show will also give us an opportunity to highlight Donegal and discuss a wide variety of serious issues with others on lighter tone. It is a good mix of topics and it is going to be an interesting experience”, said Noel.

The SD show, which is a mix of news and current affairs, is also an opportunity for Noel to interact with a wide range of listeners and do some human-interest stories.

It will also serve as a platform to highlight the North West and get some interesting and quirky stories, especially during the summer season, Said Noel.

“I am really looking forward to this and especially interacting with the audience. It is a great opportunity and will give me a chance to highlight a numbers of issues of importance on the day,” Noel told the Post.

So tune in to Highland Radio from 10am to 1pm from Friday onwards and enjoy the show with Noel, who will be addressing a variety of issues on the day. If you feel like participating, give the station a ring and give your viewpoint on any subject that is of concern to you.
