Pay Gap Pay Reductions

The BBC’s highest earning male presenters are facing pay cuts as the battle to contain the scandal over gender discrimination continues. 

Several prominent men have already accepted reductions since their salary bands were made public last summer. According to the BBC News website, John Humpreys, Huw Edwards, Jeremy Vine and Nicky Campbell have all agreed, either formally or in principle, to reduce their salaries.

It comes after the BBC’s China editor Carrie Gracie resigned from her role in protest at unequal pay, calling for men and women at the corporation to be paid the same. 

Carrie Gracie is due to appear before a select committee of MPs next week, shortly before the director general of the BBC, Tony Hall, his deputy, Anne Bulford and the director of news and current affairs, Fran Unsworth to discuss what action the corporation is taking to address the gender pay gap.
