Keith Shanley

I have over 30 years broadcasting experience on many of the main radio stations in Ireland. I have been involved in everything from management to presenting Talk shows to every music driven programme possible. Currently, I present the longest running love songs programme in the country ‘Twilight Time’ (Bringing the Slow Set back…on your radio) on Midlands 103FM.

I’ve been with Christmas FM from Day One, presenting the Breakfast Show for 8 Years and now the popular ‘Sleigh Ride’, from 10pm till 1am, Monday to Thursday. I have presented more programmes then anyone on Christmas FM and I’m happy to be the presenter for Outside Broadcasts and the first voice you hear each year, launching the station.

When I’m not on air, I might be your DJ at your party or wedding

Your role at Christmas FM
Why Christmas FM
I feel everybody should do something for charity, both in their hometown and for their country, whether it be a donation or helping others by volunteering with a organisation. Everyone has a skill they can offer to a charitable organisation and I would like to think my skill set is in radio broadcasting. When I was asked to be involved in Christmas FM, it was a simple decision, and I'm delighted to still volunteer 11 years later.
