I've ruminated on this for the last couple of days, on and off. Still at a total loss over Zoe's salary. Incredible.

Raver, it might be to do with her also doing the Strictly follow up show on BBC2.
I've heard that she's lost around a million listeners compared to Chris Evans.

I presume Laverne's salary includes desert Island Discs and Feltz' her local radio show.

Of course, Foggy. Doh! My brain cell clearly isn't what it used to be. I knew about the loss of listeners, but not my loss of memory. Vanessa Feltz does two morning shows. One on R2 and one on BBC Radio London. Though the local one wouldn't amount to much. And Lauren is good at the things she does.

Ian hasn't put Graham Norton's chat show up there, so judging by his salary, it's a separate thing. Surely he wouldn't get almost £500,000 less than Zoe if it was. I still think it's crazy, H . But not quite as crazy now Foggy has enlightened me.

Zoe Ball's eye-watering salary does not include what she gets for Strictly: It Takes Two - it is purely for 210 editions of the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.


These are the salaries paid directly to presenters from the BBC, so fees paid by production companies are not included in the BBC report. Strictly is made by BBC Studios so whatever they pay Zoe hasn't been made public. Same goes for Claudia Winkleman - I mistakenly put Strictly on the list above but in fact it's just general appearances "across a range of programmes and series.

Graham Norton's company makes his chat show, so again we've no idea what he's getting paid for that (although it is one of the most-watched English-language chat shows in the world so he should be on a fair whack).

Vanessa Feltz is paid for 200 Radio 2 shows and 220 Radio London shows plus Radio 2 cover.

Lauren Laverne is paid for 210 Breakfast Shows, 40 6Music Recommends, 30 Desert Island Discs, and the Mercury Music Prize.

I seem to remember seeing/hearing that BBC's employee's salaries were negotiated by their agents so,if true, the better the salary the better the agent's negotiating skills.

Thanks for the update Ian, that does make Zoe's salary eye watering!

I think Graham Norton gets something like £3.5 million for his tv show.

I'm a bit puzzled why Steve Wright gets so much more than Ken.

To be fair, that's simple: Steve Wright's show is 30 minutes longer than Ken's plus he does Sunday Love Songs.

Ken's salary is actually up £105,000 on last year despite no longer being required to do Friday Night is Music Night.

Ken is on £1735 per show (£694 per 30mins) and Steve is on £1796 (£599 per 30mins)
