Larry Masterson, who produced many of RTÉ's entertainment programmes including The Late Late Show, has died aged 73. He passed away on Sunday, April 14th.

Larry Masterson, former producer of the Late Late Show as well as many other primetime television shows, has died aged 73. He produced several major TV chat shows for RTÉ. Shows produced by Masterson include Saturday Night with Miriam, The Saturday Show, Irish Waterways, Health Squad, Open House with Gloria Hunniford, and The Daniel O'Donnell Show.

Over the course of his career, Masterson produced shows for TG4, Channel 4, the Discovery Channel, Learning Channel, and Travel Channel. He retired as Executive Producer of The Late Late Show in May 2017.

Masterson passed away on Sunday April 14th, his family by his side, in Blackrock Hospice in Dublin.

"Larry was legendary in the industry; deeply respected, much liked, and widely admired,” said RTÉ Director-General Kevin Bakhurst. “Following a diversion from his early career as a social worker, his career in television spanned over 40 years.”

"From an initial foray in current affairs, Larry soon found his niche in entertainment, and his work with Mike Murphy on The Live Mike - including his infamous Candid Camera style inserts - were not only hugely innovative but were cultural moments then and now.

"As executive producer on The Late Late Show, the world's longest-running live entertainment show, Larry ensured the continuity of the programme's iconic status in Irish life.

"He said a good Late Late should be like a good night out. Audiences, whether they knew it or not, had countless great nights out with Larry. His contribution will be long remembered."

Masterson is survived by his wife Hazel, and daughters Kerri and Tara.
