RTÉ 2FM is celebrating it’s 40th Anniversary today and kicked off this morning wityh a one hour special bringing The Ryan Line back to life.

The late DJ was one of the iconic stars to have come through the airwaves of @FM and at 9 O’Clock he was back in a look back over hos shows introduced by his daughter Lottie.

The station’s latest line up of presenters was on hand to remember their own thoughts on the station and one element was particularly notable.

Gender balance is a particular issue across the media but 2FM can stand proud behind the strong line up of women presenters from the returning Jenny Greene through to the newest arrival Doireann Garrihy.

The memories were of Ryan, Ryan Tubridy, Dave Fanning, Larry Gogan and Rick O’Shea.

Spot the difference there between today and yesteryear…
