Sharon Ní Bheoláin ['?ær?n ni: 'v?o:l?a:n?] (born 15 February 1971)[1] is an Irish journalist, newsreader and presenter with Radio Telefís Éireann (RTÉ), Ireland's national radio and television station, where she has presented many flagship programmes including RTÉ News: One O'Clock and RTÉ News: Six One as well as all other news bulletins on both radio and television.[1]

In 2018 she became the new anchor of RTÉ News: Nine O'Clock while she will also present Crimecall.


Before joining RTÉ, she worked for the Dublin radio station, 'Raidió na Life'.[2][3][4]

Ní Bheoláin began her career with RTÉ in 1994, presenting Nuacht RTÉ and in 1997, she became the presenter of News 2.[2] Throughout the early 2000s, she had sporadic appearances on various RTÉ News programmes, including the Six-One News, the Nine O'Clock programme and on RTÉ Two's News programmes. In 2005, she became permanent co-presenter of the Six One News. In November 2013, Ní Bheoláin revealed that she would be leaving Six One News to pursue something new.[5]

She also presented the short-run RTÉ series Turas Teanga, which helped viewers learn the Irish language.

Ní Bheoláin is separated and has one daughter.[3] Though not a native Irish speaker, she graduated from Trinity College, Dublin (TCD), with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in early and modern Irish in 1992.[2]
