Samantha Mumba lands weekly radio show on 98FM in Dublin

Samantha Mumba landed her own weekly show on a Dublin radio station.

The Irish singer-songwriter, who shot to fame in the 2000s after releasing hits such as Body II Body and Gotta Tell You, will be on air on Dublin radio station 98FM every Saturday night.

His new show, Good Time Anthems, kicks off this weekend.

Speaking about the move, Samantha said, “I’m beyond thrilled to be joining the 98FM team. As someone who grew up listening to the station and literally calling in with requests for songs so I could record them on my tape recorder, that’s a pretty full circle!

The 39-year-old’s new show comes as 98FM has launched a new slogan for the station: ‘Dublin’s Good Times’.

Listeners can expect to hear music that reflects the new motto, including classic anthems from Daft Punk, Eminem, Destiny’s Child and the Black Eyed Peas.

And 98FM has welcomed other new faces and voices to its lineup, like Leanne Hanafin – who will present weekday evenings – and Níamh Ní Chróinín and Andy Gleeson who join weekends on the station.

Meanwhile, Dublin actor and playwright Emmet Kirwan will take on a new role as the station’s voiceover.

Commenting on 98FM’s new programme, James Brownlow, Editor, Music and Entertainment, Bauer Media Audio Ireland said: “With Dublin’s Good Times, 98FM is reaching out to a Dublin audience who, in the 2000s, was discovering life , had her first great relationships , vacation, responsibility free and just living their best life!

“As the country feels like it’s headed for Good Times again, we’re bringing to market a format that’s super focused on delivering nothing but Good Time anthems and experiences all day, everyday.

“There’s nothing quite like 98FM in the Dublin market for the public, I’m sure listeners will love how you feel”
