MAGGIE BARRY FAREWELLS RADIO LIVE

Maggie Barry has decided not to renew her contract with RadioLIVE and will finish her drive-time show just prior to
Christmas.

Ms Barry said she has a number of projects underway for 2011 and she wanted the time and energy to focus on
them.

“I have enjoyed my time at RadioLIVE, there’s never a dull moment and I will miss my colleagues and, of course, our
loyal listeners,” she said.

“Hosting a daily radio show has been stimulating but it is enormously time consuming and I want more flexibility to
travel and write and do other things.”

Group Programme Director Jana Rangooni paid tribute to Ms Barry’s contribution to RadioLIVE.

“Maggie Barry is the consummate professional broadcaster and RadioLIVE has been lucky to have her for the last
two years. She is one of the country’s best interviewers and has demonstrated that intelligence and integrity on a daily basis on Drive,” said Ms Rangooni.

“Maggie will be missed by her colleagues and listeners, but we respect the fact she wants to focus on other areas and
we absolutely wish her well.”

Options for a new drive-show host are now under consideration with no decisions made until the new year.
Maggie Barry’s last day on RadioLIVE Drive will be Wednesday 22 December.
