Ryan Tubridy has said he apologises unreservedly for not querying 'incorrect figures' published by RTÉ about his salary.

The state broadcaster yesterday admitted to payments of 345 thousand euro between 2017 and 2022 to Ryan Tubridy.

He confirmed he will not present his radio show next week.

The broadcaster also said ALL his earnings have always been included in his company accounts and his taxes are up to date.

Tubridy disputed the allegation he hasn't taken a substantial pay cut during difficult years for the broadcaster, saying his salary has fallen around 40 per cent since 2012.

He also said this news had no bearing on his decision to leave the Late Late Show.


Ryan Tubridy said trust is at the centre of this issue and he wholeheartedly apologised to both colleagues and listeners.

Meanwhile, Dee Forbes has also issued a statement following her suspension as Director General.

She said she "participated in the review conducted by Grant Thornton to determine the full circumstances and facts surrounding two specific payments to fulfil a contractual obligation for the years 2021 and 2022."

"The impact of these issues is a matter of profound regret."
