    I dont think anyone could match up to Gerry Ryan. He was one of a kind.
    The Truth is out there.

    That's the end of that slot for me. I'm not listening to that tosser. I suppose he'll be wanting a pay raise for doing the extra hours. Who's going to take over his slot on RTE Radio1?

    I think a host from one of the smaller stations would be the way to go. These presenters are more real than this Barbie doll.

    rimmerguy.... I think you worded the topic title in a bit of misleading way..... from reading that many people might think you're saying he's like Gerry Ryan. The only thing they shared is a name.

    They're polar opposites in a lot of ways: Gerry was slow and relaxed and thoughtful, Ryan is fast and superficial. Gerry listened patiently to all guests and took no favourites, Ryan is a snobby git who speaks totally different to different people. Gerry seemed really interested in all things and tried to get them to open up, Ryan talks over or contradicts them sometimes while trying to do lame jokes at others, just making them much more careful in what they say and not getting to their true feelings.

    Bad choice by rte,probably an easy choice for them.Nobody could ever replace gerry ryan but to put him in this slot is a joke.I don't listeners will be able to relate to tub's as his ego since he got the late,late gig has gone statusphoric.
    I have lived a life of regrets.

    If Tubridy wasn't the preferred choice, then who would you have fit the bill...its a given that it was a huge slot to fill, and a great earner for RTE, so if you were head of radio, who would you have in that slot?

    yes, BAD CHOICE, why not keep evelyn o rourke in there with another mail? Since Gerry Ryan dies, have you hear the words

    bullshit, shit, feck off, arsehole, asshole, vagina, wee wee, willy, a big penis etc... mentioned on radio? NO!

    Tubridy is fine for one hour, doing book club and the usual duiscussions, he is dub 4 type, Tubridy ia not going to now start saying rude words , not for the sake of it, but because Tubridy would not be as impassioned about the debt crisis, nama, bullsht politicians, hypocricy, crimes commited by the sheriffs, who the revenue and gardai have turned a blind eye to. This was mentioned on the show about a wek before he died and it's unlikely we will hear that story coming up again.

    Gerry was one of us, spoke like us and RTE could not say boo to him and rightly so. Gerry would speak his mind, but knew when to pull back. There has to be somebody out there who is raw and interesting and doesn't give a shit about the muppets on the board of r.t.e coming down on him for shit "lion shit" on radio.

    Well in response to NGAN , i think that who ever was going to get the mid morning slot , they were going to be sitting in Gerrys seat , and if it was Ray Darcy then i would have worded the title in the same fashion but thats neither here nor there .

    It is hoped that Tubridys young audience will follow him across to 2fm and no doubt the advertisers will be happy with the new appointment . Personally i'd have preferred Evelyn O Rourke and Fiona Looney to take the reigns , but i'll give tubbers a chance as the new show will be from 9-11am and it will be a very different one to the Ryan line , rememeber when he used to say You tell us and we'll tell the world ....

    And i'd put a 5vr on Kathryn Thomas taking over the radio 1 slot
