RADIO star Ray D'Arcy insists he did not get a pay rise after jumping ship to RTÉ - and would be earning the same amount had he stayed at Today FM.

The 51-year-old defected from Today FM to RTÉ last year for a reported salary of €500,000.

However, he vehemently refutes claims that he switched stations for money reasons.

"I negotiated a new contract at Today FM and that salary is exactly what I'm getting now at RTÉ for doing both radio and TV," he said. "I could have stayed where I was and made the same money just for doing the radio. Now I'm doing a six-day week."
