RTE headquarters in Donnybrooke, Dublin 4; Senator Ronan Mullen
The senator said the top paid celebs at the station [RTE] are not so “indispensable” to justify such extravagant pay.
“The talent is good, but it is not so exceptional to think that there is no other talent coming through the ranks.
“In fact, you could argue that RTE build up the talent and help create the name.
“It has never been established that particular individuals provide such indispensable service to the nation that fees of €300k or €400k are unavoidable.”
