Late Late Show host, Ryan Tubridy.


Ryan Tubridy is to step down from The Late Late Show on RTÉ television.

The national broadcaster has confirmed that Tubridy will step down from the world’s longest running chat shot on television at the end of the current season. His last Late Late Show will air on Friday, May 26th, on RTÉ One.

“It has been a privilege to host the national institution that is the Late Late Show for the last 14 years. I want to thank the tremendous teams of producers, researchers, crew and executives who have done the hard work to keep the show on the road over the years. Many have become dear friends. Also, to the viewers, I am so grateful for the loyalty you have shown to the Late Late Show, week in, week out,” said Mr Tubridy in a statement.

“Not only did you raise €30 million for Irish charities including over €15 million for children’s charities all over the island that are particularly close to my heart, but you showed incredible generosity of spirit for which I am profoundly grateful. I was often touched by the kind comments of viewers stopping me on the street or at the supermarket on a Saturday to say ‘thank you’ or ‘well done’ for highlighting an issue that affected them or their families on the previous night’s show. Go raibh maith agaibh.

“And finally, to my family who stood by me every day of every week, year in, year out. To my daughters especially, they put up with so much and I am as grateful to them as I am awestruck by them,” he continued.

Tubridy will continue to present his radio show on weekday mornings on RTÉ Radio 1. RTÉ has said that they will make an announcement regarding Tubridy’s successor later in the summer.
