Zainab Boladale from Ennis, Co. Clare has become the newest presenter on news2day, RTÉ’s news service for a young audience, and the first RTÉ news anchor of Afro-Irish heritage.
The 20-year-old was born in Lagos, Nigeria but has lived in Ennis since she was four years old. The first-time television presenter secured her new job following a call-out to media and journalism graduates across the country, and a comprehensive audition process.
Afro-Irish? Nice bullshit name for this creature no doubt thought up & employed by some diversity officer at RTE.
