‘The sacked presenter club’ – Ryan Tubridy meets with Piers Morgan in London

“The sacked presenter club”

While speculation is rife around Ryan Tubridy’s next move after parting ways with RTÉ, controversial British presenter Piers Morgan has posted a picture of himself alongside the former Late Late Show host with a cryptic message.

In the post, Morgan says:

The sacked presenter club! Great to see Ireland’s biggest TV star Ryan Tubridy in London today, and excited to see what he does next. RTE’s loss will definitely be someone else’s gain…

Known for being the editor of the Daily Mail before he was fired in 2004, Morgan has been a presenter for the free-to-air channel TalkTV on the programme Piers Morgan Uncensored since 2022.

Mentioning that Tubridy was in London, Morgan’s post will no doubt fuel further speculation that the ex-RTÉ man is looking at jobs in the UK.

Reports suggested just that last month, with word of UK channel GB News contacting Tubridy to discuss a role.

GB News editorial director Michael Booker told The Sun: “Ryan Tubridy is a fantastic broadcaster. A people’s presenter with great wit and empathy.”

While he refused to discuss what the negotiations were, Booker said: “We keep a keen eye on broadcasters across the UK and Ireland.”

While a move to the UK looks a lot more likely after Piers Morgan’s cryptic Tweet, Tubridy also has offers to take up a role in Ireland with Classic Hits FM offering him a lucrative deal.

In the meantime, while Tubridy weighs up his next move, the presenter announced that he will be releasing a “series of book recommendations” via video clips.
