Gary Lineker’s salary cut is estimated at more than £ 400,000 a year

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has agreed to cut his salary to বেতন 400,000, the BBC has revealed since it released its latest list of the best-paid presenters.

The chart shows Linecar as the highest-earning star with an unchanged salary of 1.75 million last fiscal year.

But since then he has signed a new contract, which will see that the fee has been reduced by 23%.

That means he could earn less than Joe Ball next year. Since taking charge of the breakfast program in 2019, the Radio 2 presenter has increased her salary by 1 million.

Fiona Bruce and Lauren Laverne are also in the top ten of the BBC’s highest paid stars, with four women for the first time. The corporation’s annual report found that Vanessa Filtz was among the top earners.

The lineman’s new salary will be published in next year’s list. Director General Tim Davy told reporters: “Gary Lineker has signed a new five-year contract, saving a quarter more than his last contract.”

Mr Dewey described the former England player as a brilliant broadcaster and said his new contract was a great example of “the best talent and the best quality”.

“And before you ask, Gary is aware of his responsibility to the BBC to use social media,” Mr Davy added, referring to the rules of social media for BBC staff and presenters that will be announced soon.

Lineker, who often discusses his political views online, sent a message to the “hater” on Twitter.

  • BBC Star Salary: Who Makes What?

Overall, the total salary bill of the BBC’s on-air talents increased by £ 1 million in 2019/20 to 4 144.6 million. The top earners are still all white.

Some stars do not appear on the payroll because the BBC’s commercial arm, BBC Studios, which hosts many popular shows, does not have to disclose its fees.

As a result, some of the BBC’s biggest program stars, such as Top Gear and Doctor Who, are missing from the list.

His rigorous spin-off has made it take to BBC studios and the ball’s salary has risen despite not being included.

Last year, the top earners included three women, Ball, Claudia Winkleman and Feltz.

The overall gender pay gap in the BBC has narrowed from 6.7% to 6.2%. Former Director General Tony Hall promised to close the gender pay gap by 2020.

Mr Dewey said “” was a very offensive goal, “adding that” we can be proud of our progress but we have to go further. “

But she said she wanted to increase the number of women in leadership positions, which is currently 45% lower than the target, 45%. “It’s about leaders, not action, rather than talk,” he said.

The annual report also found that 12.3% of BBC leaders were left leaders, down from the 15% target of 2020.

This annual report contains a lot of complex messages but probably leads to simple and negative headlines for the BBC.

The payroll of on-air broadcasters – which includes me – reflects three years of reform.

As part of this reform, many broadcasters – especially not only men – either took significant pay cuts (Hugh Edwards, Jeremy Vine, etc.) or left the BBC (Chris Evans, John Humphries left today, Eddie Mayer).

Now a number of broadcasters – especially exclusive women – have had their salaries increased.

Seriously, these women broadcasters ’salary increases (Joe Ball, Fiona Bruce, Lauren Laverne, Emily Mytils), reflect the extra work.

The total salary increase of those whose salaries are published – about m 1 million – is not huge in financial terms, the number of people and the salary given to them is, in fact, below inflation, and thus cut into actual terms.

Yet optics are bad for the BBC. Complexity doesn’t cut into high-paying stories.

The simple truth is, at a time of great hardship across the country, so many people are unnecessarily suffering and suffering and suffering, this huge salary (and their modest overall increase) will hit many license fee payers as offensive.

Another big story ances the BBC’s mean in the medium term, they are badly stressed. It’s interesting that by the end of next year, the BBC has saved about 800 800 in just five years.

The fact is, however, that license fees did not rise, including inflation, between 2010 and 2017, and that the coronavirus epidemic hit 125 million h (at least), a huge blow to the bottom line for the coming year.

And even before you consider it, Tiktok, YouTube and WhatsApp seem to be a generation that needs to pay for a TV license.
