According to the latest (2012):

Ryan Tubridy €495,000
Pat Kenny €441,000 (in negotiation)
Joe Duffy €300,000
Marian Finucane €295,000
Miriam O'Callaghan €211,000
Bryan Dobson €198,000 (2011)
George Hamilton €168,000
Com Hayes €170,000
Brendan O'Connor €158,000

Given that the "stars" regularly question some members of the public about their pay conditions (cuts) in this crisis time "on behalf of the public", should we also get a chance to question their pay condition in this crisis time? After all, much of their pay come from tax payer's money as well.

I get the feeling that their hourly pay rates could be higher than the bankers', but I might be wrong.

They are deep cuts. Yes, from a high level and a lot of money is still paid to them, but its still a large cut in one year.

According to the latest (2012):

Ryan Tubridy €495,000 half
Pat Kenny €441,000 (in negotiation) quarter
Joe Duffy €300,000 Zero
Marian Finucane €295,000 Zero
Miriam O'Callaghan €211,000 €120,000-€150,000
Bryan Dobson €198,000 (2011) should have been fired years ago
George Hamilton €168,000 Zero. Worst commentator I have ever heard
Com Hayes €170,000 Don't know him, which means he's not exactly a 'star'. So less.
Brendan O'Connor €158,000 half

What did Dobson do?

Anyway, I was really surprised to learn that he could earn nearly 200,000 euros a year for (co-)reading news about 30 minutes a day, five days a week, roughly.

They should be paid what a commercially successful station can afford. A station without a monopoly on advertising or any access to taxpayer subventions.

Coached politicans on how to dodge his own questions. Allegedly!

Curious to know how much the "stars" at TV3 are paid.

The commercial worth of all these stars is so much so that they're still in Ireland!

I have the feeling that the people (not only the RTE stars) in these so-called "semi state" organisations have managed to dodge the recession bullet quiet successfully so far. My ESB bill has doubled since the recession started for example. Again, I could be wrong.
