A couple of weeks ago, Rachael Kane went to The Nicky Byrne Show studio to see how the magic happened. She shared a great article on Buzz.ie about her experience. Read it below:
“The beast has to be fed every day.” that’s how Zbyszek Zalinski describes his job as producer of 2FM’s The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene, going live across the nation for three hours every weekday and attracting a listenership of over 130,000. He, fellow producer Caroline Clarke(they alternate days), Lorraine Dunne (broadcast coordinator) and Amanda Fennelly(assistant producer) are the engine that drives the busy programme.
I went behind the scenes at RTE Radio Centre in Donnybrook to see what really happens on the show. In the pre-show production meeting, the team runs through what’s coming up over the following three hours. Although the broadcast is music heavy and banter filled, it still takes serious fodder to keep an audience satisfied. Then we head to the studio where the Breakfast Republic team (Jennifer Maguire, Bernard O’Shea and Keith Walsh) bail out and the next squad sit in their still warm seats. Seconds later, Nicky and Jenny are on air.
It was a new night of Can’t Stop Dancing, the special to Dancing With The Stars Ireland. Its host, Bláthnaid Treacy chatted to Nicky after last Sunday’s show, where he revealed what his favourite dance has been so far. You can watch it back on the RTÉ Player, by clicking on the picture below:
Switch Up Week on Dancing With The Stars Ireland was everything I hoped for and more. It actually ended up working on everyone’s favour and many high scores were given to various contestants… Including a Perfect 10 (3 tens) for Dayl Cronin! If you missed the action, you can now catch up on the RTÉ Player:
But if what you want is more Behind The Scenes and Backstage fun, then Emily Barker and Curtis Pritchard have you covered! Before the live show, they were live on Facebook to show us around the set so we could see what goes down before DWTS starts! You can also click here to watch last week’s recap.

Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars Ireland was the best yet! This time we got to see all the contestants dance and fight to stay in the competition. Lots of laughs and fun, but unfortunately Hughie Maughan was the first celebrity to be eliminated. He will be missed! The show was also very special because Nicky’s family was in the audience. 🙂
Week 1 of Dancing With The Stars Ireland is now over and I have to congratulate the show’s team for doing such a phenomenal job! Nicky was an natural as the show’s host, interacting and having a ball with the contestants, judges and of course, the audience. The set was beautiful and the energy was contagious! I cannot wait to see what else is in store next week, where the girls will take on the dance floor. If you missed the excitement, or want to relive it again, you can watch it below or with the RTÉ Player app. Enjoy!

The premiere of Dancing With The Stars Ireland is in 2 days, but RTÉ One has something special planned. Every Friday at 8:30pm, they’ll be giving the audience a special Behind The Scenes look at the series. Bláthnaid Treacy is the host of Can’t Stop Dancing. Don’t miss the first episode tonight!
