RTE’s various radio stations have announced their new-ish line-ups for the forthcoming season.

Headline changes: two new arts shows on RTE Radio One; Drivetime extended to 7pm; new sports show on RTE Radio One called Sport at 7 presented by Daragh Maloney; John Creedon gets the gig as RTE Radio One evening music host; Dave Fanning moves back to 2fm to present “a new fast-moving topical chat show” every weekday at 7pm; Marty Whelan gets a daily gig on Lyric FM and Raidio na Gaeltachta to stop broadcasting in Irish for the month of November (OK, I made that one up).

But the biggest change? “2fm to be re-positioned in 2010 following a strategic review. Station profile to shift from 15-34 to 25-44″. Yes, 2fm admit the game is up and that they can’t compete for the kids with other stations around the country so, Today FM, they’re comingatcha! Bet Today FM are chortling loudly at that one. Dave Fanning v Paul McLoone? That’s a bit like Limerick v Tipperary yesterday to be honest.
