Tomorrow (Wednesday) sees the announcement of new schedules for both RTE Radio One and 2fm. As always happens when there are moves and transfers of this nature afoot, the rumour mill goes into overdrive. It’s all under wraps until tomorrow morning, but any OTR readers who would like to make some educated guesses are free to do so. Naturally, anyone who would like to guess how many female DJs and presenters will get primetime spots on either station is also welcome to speak their mind. OTR’s favourite rumour so far? Tom Dunne to move from Newstalk to take over the helm at 2fm’s breakfast show.

UPDATE: New 2fm schedule has weekend jock Hector Ó hEochagáin taking over the breakfast show (7-9am), Ryan Tubridy (9-11am), Colm Hayes (minus JimJimJimJimToInfinityAndBeyond, 11am-1pm), Larry Gogan (1-2pm), Rick O’Shea (2-4.30pm) and Will Leahy (4.30-7pm). What’s that expression? Oh yeah: “plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose”
