It was all going so well but Today FM presenter, Anton Savage ended up taking an unplanned swim at the conclusion of a special broadcast from Carrick-on-Shannon last Friday.
The Anton Savage Show set sail along the Shannon last week as part of Discover Ireland’s home holiday campaign for the Lakelands campaign.
Taking in all that the region had to offer during his boating visit, organised by Fáilte Ireland, included a lesson by Leitrim Surf Company’s , Lee Guckian and Anton found himself facing the challenge of trying to stay afloat on a paddle board near Carrick-on-Shannon’s Quay area as he finished off his morning radio show.
Despite the challenge of keeping steady in a business suit, Anton succumbed to the inevitable in the final moments of the broadcast, splashing into the Shannon much to the delight of the crowds gathered nearby.
The show did provide excellent publicity for Leitrim and the surrounding area however with interviews with Charlie McGettigan, visits to Lough Key Forest Park, Electric Bike Trails and much more all coming in for discussion.
