Today FM and the world of radio and entertainment has lost one of its brightest lights, Tony Fenton.
For over 30 years Tony lit up the airwaves and was one of Ireland’s most admired and respected radio hosts, unmatched in his knowledge of and passion for music.
Tony inspired his colleagues and listeners with his positivity, and his velvety-smooth voice was one of the most recognisable on air.
Tony joined Today FM in the afternoons in August 2004, starting off his brand new show with Snow Patrol’s ‘Spitting Games’. His passion for music and radio was rewarded in 2008 when he scooped the PPI Radio Award for Music Broadcaster of The Year in Kilkenny.
Last September, after a decade at Today FM, Tony was honoured for his skill, passion and love for radio at a ceremony in Dublin in which he was welcomed into the PPI Radio Awards Hall of Fame.
A giant in Irish radio, Tony interviewed all the big names in music from Arcade Fire, Liam Gallagher and Jessie J to Al Green, Carly Simon and Tinie Tempah.
“Tony, from all your friends and colleagues in Today FM: we’ll miss you dearly dude”.
