Ger Gilroy
Managing Director
Off the Ball
Ireland



Ger Gilroy has worked in radio since 1997, and with Newstalk since 2001 when he started Off The Ball. Off The Ball was Ireland’s first nightly sports show, beginning life on the startup local station Newstalk, where it quickly won its 7-10pm timeslot each evening. Newstalk won a national license in 2006 and Off The Ball’s popularity grew to the point where it became cult listening on a national scale. In 2017 Off The Ball launched a suite of internet tv shows focussed on specific sports verticals to compliment the radio offering, which allowed the brand to reach a newer, younger audience and increase its female audience.
