Published 10/07/2011 | 05:00
Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy is paying himself €283,756 a year from his production company.
Tubridy, who takes over Graham Norton's slot on BBC Radio 2 on July 23, has paid himself €567,512 for the last two years, according to the accounts of his company Tuttle Productions.
As well as the Late Late, Tubridy hosts a morning show on RTE2.
According to the accounts of his production company, he had shareholder funds of €34,496 at the end of 2010. He had a director's loan of €11,840 at the end of the period.
"If they like what they hear, great. If not, that's fine too but I'm not going to think about it for now, or worry," the RTE star said in relation to his summer BBC 'nixer'.
Like many other stars at the national broadcaster, he is facing further pay cuts as RTE struggles with losses that may be up to €30m this year.
