ERIC MOORE- Broadcaster with RTE. Founder of School of Jock
After over three decades of being on the airwaves as a radio DJ and being behind the decks at live events, Eric Moore still gets a thrill from connecting with his listeners through music. Eric, who is from Neilstown in Clondalkin, hosts a show on RTÉ Gold but started his career on radio and in the music industry as an ardent hip-hop fan and performer. He has opened for hip-hop luminaries like Run DMC, Public Enemy and The Sugar Hill Gang, but his early taste for DJing was developed in the halls of Deansrath Community College, where Eric and his friends started their own radio station as ambitious teenage DJs. Golden Years with Eric Moore is on RTÉ Gold every Sunday from 5pm to 6pm.
