About

Nadine O’Regan is Books and Arts Editor with the Sunday Business Post and a columnist and feature writer with the same newspaper. She presents and produces Songs in the Key of Life on Today FM, a show where well known guests discuss their lives and pick their favourite songs to play. In September 2017, the show was nominated for an IMRO Irish Radio Award in the category of Specialist Music — the awards will take place on October 6th. It’s the second time the show has been nominated for an Irish Radio award — in 2015, the programme won bronze in the category of Specialist Music. 

Nadine contributes to a weekly music slot with John Caddell every Tuesday evening from 6.40pm on The Last Word with Matt Cooper on Today FM. She also regularly hosts public events — she has chaired events on behalf of Dalkey Books Festival, the Literary Tent in Mindfield at Electric Picnic, and the dLR Library Voices series in Dun Laoghaire.

Nadine works frequently as a voiceover artist as well as occasionally contributing to music projects (her voice is here and here).  She teaches occasional courses in arts journalism at the Irish Writers Centre and she has served as a guest lecturer in journalism at the Dublin Business School.

Before joining the Sunday Business Post, Nadine worked as a freelance journalist. Her articles have appeared in publications including Spin magazine (US), The Irish Times, The Irish Independent, Hot Press, Magill, The Observer and The Guardian.

In television, Nadine served as a reporter for The Works, the arts show on RTE 1 television from 2012-2014. She was also a frequent contributor to The View on RTE 1 television for several years. She has worked as a guest presenter/contributor on a number of programmes (see her work with UTV Ireland here).

Her radio show Songs in the Key of Life originally began life on Dublin station TXFM, where it ran from 2014-2016 before transferring to Today FM. Nadine also presented the arts show The Kiosk on Dublin station Phantom 105.2 from 2006-2013 and The Breakfast Club on Phantom from 2013-2014.

From Skibbereen, Co. Cork originally, Nadine has served for several years as a director of The Southern Star, a broadsheet newspaper based in Skibbereen, which has 50,000 readers every week, as Co. Cork’s largest circulating weekly.

In between her hurtles towards various deadlines, she loves going to gigs, hanging out with friends and reading enormous amounts of fiction. She has an M.Phil. in Creative Writing from Trinity College Dublin and a first-class honours degree in English and Philosophy from University College Cork.

  1. Hey Nadine,

    how’s the form? I tuned into the Kiosk recently and enjoyed it immensely; great to hear fresh and original programmes on the Irish airwaves, so keep on fighting the good fight.
    I have an eclectic music programme every Thursday 5-6pm you might want to check out sometime on: http://www.icrfm.ie

    Slan!

  2. Nadine,

    love the kiosk, what a wonderful show.

    just wondering if you knew whether phantom intend to start podcasting it again.
    I never manage to catch it live and there hasn’t been an episode on the website since last august.

    phantom are ignoring me emails. any idea?

    keep up the great work.

  3. Thanks Eske! Much appreciated.
    Regarding the podcasts, I’ve asked management, but as yet have no definite response for you…hopefully the podcasts will happen again soon, though — I’ll keep you posted.
    In the meantime, maybe you might be able to catch a repeat of the show — there’s one at 8am Sunday mornings and another at midnight on Tuesdays.
    Cheers,
    Nadine

  4. Hi Nadine,

    U did well on the View. Have to confess I’d never heard of you before then. Good to see a Cork girl doing so well in the big smoke. Read your piece on Tom Waites as well. U really got under his skin. We’re gonna have to watch out for you. 😉
