26% Pay cut !!!

Linakear, ( is that spelt right?) Has "accepted" a 26% pay cut from
the BBC ??
Perhaps the new boss is serious about cost cutting as opposed
to licence raising??

Donkeyman! 👍😁👍

BBC star salaries: Gary Lineker takes pay cut as Zoe Ball shoots up list

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has agreed a 400,000 pay cut, the BBC has revealed as it publishes the latest list of its best-paid presenters.

Lineker was the highest-earning star with an unchanged salary of 1.75m in the 2019/20 financial year.

But he has since signed a new contract, which will see that fee cut by 23%.

That means he could earn less than Zoe Ball next year. The Radio 2 presenter has seen her pay rise by 1m since taking over the breakfast show in 2019.
No costs cut there .....

Additionally, Fiona Bruce and Lauren Laverne have also moved into the top 10 of the highest-paid stars, which features four women for the first time. Vanessa Feltz is also among the top earners, the corporation's annual report shows.
However, many stars do not appear on the list because the corporation's commercial arm, BBC Studios, does not have to publish its talent spend.

Top Gear and Doctor Who are absent from the list because they are made by BBC Studios as is Ball's Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two and so earnings from those are not included.

Re: 26% Pay cut !!!

How on earth can the BBC justify paying that silly cow so much money when, according to today's papers, she's LOST over 1,000,000 listeners for them on what was once their flagship breakfast show? Sir Terry must be spinning in his grave.

Re: 26% Pay cut !!!

None of them are worth the money they're paid.
Lineker won't even notice his pay cut.

The whole thing needs sorting out.

Exactly, and as from this month my licence fee (or lack of it) won't be contributing!

RAJAR stopped reporting in March due to covid so it's all based on old data

....of course the report mentioned that, right?

Don't bank on it. No doubt the actual amount will be hidden.

To counter any alleged reduction in Lineker's wages, they've given Zoe Ball a massive increase despite her losing around one million listeners from her radio show.
