    Default How much should the "stars" be paid?

    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.

    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.
