Donal created Smooth HITS out of a passion for all things radio. Having completed a Radio & Media course, the next logic thing was to set up a radio station, and therefore Smooth HITS was born! Donal has a penchant for all things musical and has a slight phobia of moths!
DJ Ray trained alongside Donal (many moons ago!) and, like Donal, is a tad obsessed with music. Ray joined the team in early 2020 and is now part of the furniture. And doesn’t he look happy about it!
Sharon Mc is our Country Music mogul! She has worked on Heartbeat Radio, loves her 70’s music and Love songs. She also loves Derek Ryan, but you didn’t hear that here!
Simon is our brand new presenter! He’s a very busy guy and brings a wealth of experience to Smooth HITS, with his great selections of Classic Hits. Welcome!
Maureen is our lady behind the scenes. She runs a fantastic page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/729815137061638/ where she posts videos all of the music we play, plus lots of witty memes! Go and show her some love on her page!
Karen is our Social Media manager: Twitter https://twitter.com/smoothhitsradio and (sometimes!) our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SmoothHITSRADIO1/ If you can’t find her there, she more than likely has her nose stuck in a crossword. And she’s not as cross as she looks!
Also, we have our three Sound Engineers! From the left we have Kaydee, Trevor and Clutch, who ALWAYS have a lot to say! Kaydee’s favourite song is The Teddy’s Bear Picnic, Trevors song is Cher’s Little Man and Clutch’s go to song is Gangster’s Paradise!
Meet Jess, our new admin assistant! Jess is originally from Galway but moved to the east of the country last year. She loves food, belly rubs and any stray sock she can get her teeth into!
