This is too much money given to these people, I’m sorry but these wages are ridiculous, big ears needs to take a pay cut.
This is one of the aims of publishing it - have the big stars leave and then see the BBC ratings fall (Less on tis because it's the content not the star but on BBC radio it is a big impact and will have a big effect on light entertainment)
Except that none of the salaries for TV light entertainment duties have been published have they? I think the figures for Claudia Winkelman and Zoe Ball don't include their work for BBC Studios, and are only their core BBC Radio salaries ?
I absolutely agree that BBC radio hit a problem, with the BBC publishing salaries cited as a reason for Eddie Mair leaving.
