Pursuit of Your Route

Feb 11, 2019

Jacqui Hurley is a sports broadcaster currently working with RTÉ. In this episode, we discuss her career to date. Starting out as a radio DJ with Limerick’s Live 95FM after finishing college, she has worked her way up to becoming co presenter of Sunday Sport on RTÉ Radio One and presenter and sports journalist on the Six One News. We discuss her passion for music and English growing up. We also talk about her decision to study English and Media at Mary Immaculate College and the year of placement she did at a TV station in Mississippi. As Jacqui previously played camogie for Cork and basketball for Ireland, she explains how playing sport at a high level has taught her skills that she now uses in her broadcasting career. We also speak about the importance for leaving cert students to find an outlet that allows them to switch off from study and stress during sixth year. I hope you enjoy this episode!
