Ian Dempsey has hit out at RTE for failing to mention the passing of Tony Fenton on the Late Late Show.
The Today FM star said he was surprised the show's producers "didn't give [him] even 30 seconds" on Friday night given that he had spoken to Ryan Tubridy ahead of The Late Late Show.
The radio star Tony Fenton passed away on Thursday evening, after a long battle with prostate cancer.
Despite not mentioning him on the Late Late, Ryan Tubridy did give a special tribute to the presenter on his 2FM show on Friday.
Speaking in the morning, he said he was upset at hearing of Tony’s passing adding that, “if you believe in heaven, the good news is that heaven just got itself a DJ”.
“I started in RTE some years ago, when I was about 23 or 24 and I was running around making tea and coffee for whoever would take it from me.
“Then one of the guys turned around and said: ‘You seem like a nice fellow, you can come and help me out and work with me a little bit’ and that was Tony," he added.
