News at One with Gavin Jennings
Gavin Jennings will be standing in for Sean O’Rourke until Monday 30 August.
Dr Gavin Jennings started his career in radio in university – fronting news and sports shows on community radio – while he was studying Medicine at NUI, Galway!
After graduation, he combined working in A&E departments with covering politics for the Belfast Newsletter before joining BBC Northern Ireland, first as a newsreader on Radio Ulster and later as a reporter and presenter with Radio Foyle’s Sony award-winning news and sports team.
Gavin came to RTÉ five years ago and has presented News at One, Morning Ireland, This Week, Saturday Sport, Friday Sportsnight and Take Your Point on Radio 1 and as a reporter for TV Sport.
Originally from Navan, he still hopes to be on the sideline the NEXT time the Royal County win the All-Ireland. ‘It’s only a matter of time,’ he says.
Gavin was recently awarded the PPI News Reporter of the Year 2009 Bronze Award.
