Ryan Tubridy (born 28 May 1973), nicknamed "Tubs",is an Irish broadcaster, a presenter of live shows on radio and television in Ireland. Only in his forties, he is one of the youngest presenters on Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ), and is the one who earns the most.

Current host of long-running TV chat programme The Late Late Show and a weekday morning radio show called Tubridy, Tubridy was a pioneering member of the Twitterati before he departed in August 2011.

Tubridy previously presented RTÉ 2fm breakfast radio show The Full Irish, which at its end was the second most popular[citation needed] radio programme in Ireland. For five seasons from 2004 until 2009, he presented the Saturday night TV chat show Tubridy Tonight on RTÉ One. He later left RTÉ 2fm for a number of years to present weekday morning radio programme The Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1, but returned to RTÉ 2fm in 2010 to present his current weekday morning radio show from 09:00 to 11:00, following the termination of The Gerry Ryan Show with the presenter's sudden death. He has also hosted the Rose of Tralee contest on two occasions.

As part of a two-book deal with HarperCollins—and in a nod to his passion for U.S. politics—Tubridy penned JFK in Ireland, a profile of U.S. President John F. Kennedy's 1963 visit to Ireland. He is currently working on a second book.
