Baz and Lucy bow out but hint at future projects

An emotional Lucy Kennedy yesterday signed off on her radio show with Baz Ashmawy — but the RTÉ stars hinted they may be back on air in the near future.

The pair’s popular weekend show was axed by the station after it became one of the casualties of cutbacks in 2fm.

The high-profile duo expressed their sadness at bowing out of their three- hour slot after two years, but Kennedy told listeners they could be back on the airwaves soon.

“You will be seeing us back on the telly very soon and back on the radio maybe sooner than you think.

“We are going to miss our listeners and we are going to miss it being only us and security in the building because there is something very naughty about that.

“I am going to miss my access to Michael Bublé and free stationary and seeing Larry Gogan’s smiley face and I already miss Larry.”

She also mysteriously tweeted yesterday that the pair will be returning to the airwaves quite soon.

“We’ll be back on air somewhere having a laugh before you know it!! X”, she tweeted to one fan.

Over the past two years, the presenters have both become parents with Kennedy giving birth to her second child Holly in April, and Ashmawy becoming a father to Hannah shortly after joining the show in 2010.

He recently announced his partner is expecting a new baby in the autumn.

Kennedy alluded to the pair’s disappointment at the end of their show, but pointed out that family was the most important thing in life. “In the greater scheme of things all that matters is having healthy babies and you’ve got your family and friends and everything else is just gravy.”

The programme is just one of a number of shows axed as bosses scramble to keep finances in check.
