If Newstalk is your radio station of choice at the weekends then take note. 

The company has announced some changes to their Saturday and Sunday schedules.

One major change will see Bobby Kerr presenting a new magazine style show on Sunday mornings in addition to his regular 'Down to Business' programme on Saturdays.

As well as that, Ivan Yates is back a new, agenda setting, two hour show on Sunday mornings called 'Yates On Sunday'. 

Dr. Ciara Kelly will be bringing her show, 'Alive and Kicking', to a new slot at 9am on Saturday morning while 'Talking Point with Sarah Carey' will take over the 8am slot. 

CEO Tim Collins has spoken of his excitement about the new-look Newstalk:

“We’re really excited about this new look for weekends at Newstalk. Ivan’s return is a key part of the new schedule and we also have an entertaining new magazine-style show from Bobby Kerr on Sunday mornings, which will be completely different to his well-known Down to Business programme.

Weekends on Newstalk will continue to set the agenda with the best guests and cutting edge opinion and analysis while Off the Ball will continue to deliver Ireland’s best sports programme every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.”

The full revamped schedule, which begins on April 1, reads as follows:
