Weekend AM (stylised as Weekend:am) is an Irish morning television show on Virgin Media One, that was first broadcast as "Saturday AM" on 29 August 2015 at 09:00, with "Sunday AM" beginning the following day.

Development[edit]

Following the success of Ireland AM and an absence of live breakfast television on the weekends, the TV3 Group (now Virgin Media Television) confirmed in June 2015, it would introduce a weekend slot to its schedule.[1]

It was confirmed Ireland AM presenter Anna Daly would move to the new weekend slot and present alongside Ivan Yates[1][2] and Laura Woods. The show broadcasts between 09:00 to 12:00 each Saturday and Sunday. The programme features news, current affairs, weather updates and analysis of the weekend newspapers with in-studio guests.

On 30 August 2018, to coincide with the rebranding of TV3 to "Virgin Media One", Ireland AM launched a new set, and the Saturday and Sunday editions of the programme will be renamed as "Weekend AM".[3]
