The Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI), the representative body for Ireland’s independent radio broadcasters has offered its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Tony Fenton.
Chairman of the IBI John Purcell said “Tony Fenton has been a consistent voice on Irish radio since he first graced the airwaves in 1979. His was a voice that many of us grew up listening to. The esteem that the radio industry held him in was evident when Tony was inducted into the PPI Hall of Fame in October of last year. We send our condolences to Tony’s family, to his radio family in Today FM and his many thousands of listeners many of whom will have a void in their radio schedules after today”.
“A great voice has been lost to Irish radio and the entire industry is deeply saddened to lose one of Ireland’s most popular and well known broadcasters, most entertaining gentlemen and most loyal friend.”
