The radio host has hit back at radio stars that said his show would never work


Nicky Byrne has revealed other radio presenters thought his 2fm show would be a disaster.

The former Westlife star has said he has finally proved his critics wrong – as he is set to celebrate one year on air next week with co-host Jenny Greene.

After winning the ratings battles in the last few JNLR figure releases, Nicky is quickly becoming radio’s biggest stars.

“Some other presenters on other stations who have less listeners than us said this would be a disaster,” Nicky admitted.

Unfortunately, the Dubliner didn’t name names, but hinted that a male DJ had tried to put him down.

“Can I say it? I don’t care. What was his name again? I actually can’t even remember his name,” he said.

“Someone from another radio station said something bad about us? That can’t be true,” co-host Jenny laughed.

It isn’t the first time the ex-boybander has been faced with criticism since he made the transition from music to radio.

Nicky felt pressure from listeners over his presenting skills in the shows early days but insisted the digs didn’t bother him.

“You can’t keep everybody happy – when you do a job in public life people have their opinions and you are going to get a bit of stick here and there.”
