Radio presenter Joe Ball has asked the BBC to pay him “less” after his mil 1 million salary increase.
The 49-year-old star’s salary rose to ਸਾਲ 1.36 million a year and she recently topped the corporation’s paycheck after a 23% cut in match host Gary Lineker.
Now Radio 2 breakfast show presenter Joe, who lives in Duchling, has to cut his salary at his request, according to The Sun.
A BBC source told The Sun: “Joe was paid a lot when he was hired at the time because the BBC had a gender paycheck and she was taking a high-paying job instead of a man.
“She always gets paid for what she earns and she works very hard, gets up at 4am every morning and works long hours.
“But in today’s climate and epidemic, she has felt increasingly uncomfortable about how much she has earned and has requested that it be reduced.”
The pay rise drew criticism when it was revealed that Chris Evans had lost more than a million listeners at the breakfast show compared to what was offered. Figras, released last October, said that number had dropped to 7.9 million since Zoe took office. She said she kept in mind the data collected by Rajar.
The presenter is set to begin talks with the BBC about the alleged pay cut in the coming weeks and is expected to sign a new deal starting in January.
Joe has been broadcasting since 1993 and hosted Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast Show in the 1990s and then the BBC’s Live and Kicking.
