On 12 October 2012, it was announced that Ray and JP were leaving Today FM to host the breakfast show on 98FM. Following their departure from the station, former evening presenter KC started as their replacement. The slot is now held by Al Porter, a comedian and DJ formerly associated with Two fm.

Foley married his girlfriend, RTÉ 2fm newsreader, Kate Carolan in 2007. They met while they both worked on SPIN 1038. He proposed to Kate on O'Connell Street in Dublin City Centre and spent their honeymoon attending the Oxegen Music Festival. Foley and Carolan are often seen together in public.

On Monday 2 April 2012, Ray announced on-air that Kate had given birth to their first child, a boy, Matthew, on 1 April 2012. Ray announced the birth of their second child, Andrew in June 2014.


In 2009, Foley and JP presented The Essential Rock Anthems in "The Essential..." slot on Sunday Nights 19:00 - 20:00. This was so popular, that they presented two further shows, which then became a regular almost monthly feature of the slot. In November 2009, Ray Foley and JP's Essential Rock Anthems CD was launched, a two-CD collection, including tracks from artists such as Meat Loaf, Therapy?, Pixies, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Motörhead, Placebo, Blondie, Radiohead, The Knack, Status Quo, The Jam and Journey.

Foley achieved the prestigious PPI Radio Awards Music Broadcaster of the Year Award in 2009 and 2010. Also in 2009 Foley and JP won the award for Best Specialist Music Programme for their Sunday evening show, The Essential Rock Anthems with Ray & JP.

In 2008 he launched a successful daily campaign to dethrone namesake Ray D'Arcy.


In 2004, at the age of 23, Foley moved to Today FM and began presenting late night show, The Blast, from 22:00 to 00:00, Monday to Thursday, with his college friend, JP Gilbourne, from Dundalk. Foley and JP regularly filled-in for Ray D'Arcy, Tony Fenton and Tom Dunne during this time. When the radio schedule was changed in 2006, Foley moved to a midday slot, which was vacated by Tony Fenton. Foley was disciplined by Irish authorities when he broadcast the Lily Allen song "Fuck You Very Much" on lunchtime radio in 2008.


Following an entry in the DJ For a Day competition on 2FM (on Tony Fenton's Hotline show) in 1997, Foley got a taste for broadcasting. This led to him beginning his studies as a journalist in Dublin Institute of Technology, from which he graduated in October 2004 While there he started working at East Coast FM, and thence moved to 98FM and as a newsreader on Lite FM, before moving to SPIN 1038, "to get re-acquainted with presenting again". While there, he presented The Zoo Crew with Clionadh O'Leary week nights.

On Friday 12 October 2012, Foley and JP announced on the show that both of them would be transferring to Today FM's sister station 98FM to present the breakfast show.
