Adrian Kennedy Wiki – Adrian Kennedy Biography
Adrian Kennedy is an Irish radio journalist, broadcaster, and DJ. Previously, he was host and producer of the late-night radio chat show FM104 Phoneshow, alongside co-host Jeremy Dixon, from 1997 to 2013. When he left the programme, it was the highest-rated nighttime radio show in Ireland. In 2006 Kennedy was convicted of drunk driving after being found to be almost two times over the legal limit and was put off the road. He was once described as a “shock jock” by the Irish Independent newspaper for his controversial on-air persona.
In August 2013, together with his co-host and producer Jeremy Dixon resigned from FM104 to take up a job offer with the rival station 98FM. Due to a stipulation in their contracts, both were placed on six months’ garden leave after their final show on 25 September 2013, which prevented them from promoting their new show. He is also a columnist with The Herald newspaper in Dublin. He went to study at Marian College. He has won two IMRO radio awards in his radio journey.
He presented morning time phone in show Dublin Talks on 98FM alongside Dixon from 2014 to April 2021. On the 23rd April 2021, it was announced on-air that the duo had presented their last show on the station. This meant that 98fm would move to a more music format. He had been working at the station for seven years. He however said he had projects planned for the future: he said, “We’ve spent a very enjoyable seven years with 98FM, presenting Dublin Talks. We’ve covered all the big Dublin and national news stories in a unique way… airing opinions of the nation’s capital. We spent a very memorable two weeks ‘living in a box’ in the City Centre during 98FM’s Code Red – and were honoured to host the station’s Best of Dublin award. We’re most proud at having won two IMRO radio awards along the way. Both Jeremy and I are already working on new projects for the future.”
