Apparently she does 20 less days on Radio 2 compared to Radio London - but I cannot remember this being the case? Doesn’t she just pop from one studio down to another between 6:30 and 7am?


The report specifies 20 fewer Early Breakfast shows than BBC London Breakfast. Vanessa doesn't do Early Breakfast when she's covering Jeremy Vine, so that'll explain the discrepancy.

The early slot on Radio 2 and the breakfast show on Radio London, is that worth £355k? Is Vanessa Feltz massively in demand, warranting such a large salary?

She's a well known name, and a very experienced and reliable presenter which all adds to her value. It's not just a question of demand but who could they get for those gigs with the same qualities for less?

Though the fact that she's managed to get to the stage where a lot of mornings she does two radio shows and then hops it over to TV Centre to do This Morning must mean she's in some demand

I’m not really one for piling in on individuals, but I cannot for the life of me work out what Vanessa Feltz does for the BBC that’s worth £355,000 a year. Having googled it, I’m none the wiser.

Does she not do 10 radio shows a week?

Seems pretty decent value to me. They'd be paying out more if both shows had separate hosts. Plus her RAJARs are good.
