Six leading male presenters oat the BBC have agreed to take pay cuts after a row that its female presenters were getting paid much less.
Huw Edwards, Nicky Campbell, John Humphrys, Jon Sopel, Nick Robinson and Jeremy Vine will be on a much less salary. The move follows the controversial resignation of Carrie Gracie as BBC China Editor.
A BBC spokesperson said, “We are very grateful to Huw Edwards, Nicky Campbell, John Humphrys, Jon Sopel, Nick Robinson, and Jeremy Vine, who have agreed that their pay will now be reduced.
“These are great journalists and presenters, who have a real connection with the audience. We are proud to have them working at the BBC.
“The final details of some of these changes are still being discussed, and there are further conversations that the BBC will have with others in due course.”
