Shane Ross: Heroic victim is a sure bet
IVAN Yates should pick up the phone this chilly Sunday morning and ring Denis O'Brien. Ivan, the presenter of Newstalk's Breakfast Show, should tell the radio station's boss that he wants a rise.
If Denis says "No", Ivan should head for RTE.
Ivan Yates does not deserve a hike in pay simply as an act of charity because he has suddenly hit hard times. He merits recognition because he is of more value to the station today than he was this time last week, just before his company, Celtic Bookmakers, hit the deck.
