BCFE Radio Student Alumni Sharon Tobin Appointed as New RTÉ News: Six One Presenter

Huge congratulations to former Ballyfermot College Radio Student Sharon Tobin. Sharon was just appointed and debuted as the new RTE News Six One Presenter. Not alone do we fondly remember Sharon and her class, but she remains in contact with us and this term presented our BCFE Graduation Ceremony. Sharon has spoken very positively about Further Education and her BCFE journey from the Radio course here and on to the Media Production Management degree offered within BCFE.

Sharon made her announcement on X and we suggest you follow her there.
