The Late Late Show (after Gay Byrne)

Post by Kitkat on Tue 26 May 2015 - 10:55

Original host Gay Byrne presented for nearly 40 years, holding out until the end of the millennium. Ryan Tubridy now fills the role of presenter, having succeeded Pat Kenny (Byrne's successor) in September 2009. Under Tubridy, first Quinn Group and then Sky Broadband (Seán Quinn having filed for bankruptcy) added sponsorship deals—after a sterile final season with Kenny at the helm.[10][11] Tubridy's arrival coincided with a marked increase in audience ratings[12][13] with some early statistics comparing him to the Byrne era.[14] Kenny was to make an unexpected return as host on 1 February 2013, announced RTÉ on 30 January

I have started a new thread here for more recent episodes of the Late Late Show (which is still going strong, but currently hosted by Ryan Tubridy):

Starting off with one of the most hated men in Ireland, Michael O'Leary, the boss of Ryan Air.

First, here's a Panorama programme about Ryan Air.  'Who's getting rich on your money'
Following that, Michael O'Leary hits back at Panorama 'lies'.
