The Chair of the RTÉ Board is due to meet with Minister for Media of Ireland Catherine Martin this afternoon.
Siún Ní Raghallaigh is expected to discuss issues around corporate governance and transparency with Ms Martin.
According to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Ms Martin will brief Cabinet on the meeting this Tuesday.
“The public are right to expect high standards of transparency and accountability from RTÉ as it is extremely important that we can all have trust in our public service broadcasting,” he said.
This meeting follows a failure by RTÉ to disclose the full salary of presenter Ryan Tubridy between 2017 and 2022, underreporting by €345,000.
Public Accounts Committee
RTÉ has been formally called before the Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee to answer questions about Mr Tubridy’s salary.
“Those hidden figures were being paid out of public money – that's the issue here,” Committee Chair Brian Stanley said. “This isn’t some private entity we’re talking about.”
“We're talking about the national broadcaster who we’ve all put our trust in to inform us objectively of the news and to make sure we’re getting all the facts, and nothing being hidden.
“But if this is happening at the very top of the organisation it reflects very badly on the senior management.”
RTÉ Education Correspondent Emma O’Kelly said staff feel “let down” and betrayed by these revelations.
“We're the ones who are going to get the impact of this, but this is a crisis, and it is a crisis that is not of our making,” she said.
“Our members and the colleagues we work with – the crews, the satellite vans, the researchers – we've all worked really hard to earn the trust of the Irish public and value and respect that trust so much.”
