Huge salary gap between BBC stars
The BBC revealed a yawning gap between the pay of its top male and female stars on Wednesday when the national broadcaster named its highest earners for the first time. The 95-year-old corporation said Chris Evans, the radio and TV presenter who hosted for one series, was top of the list, taking home up to 2.25 million pounds ($3.3 million) in 2016/17. In contrast, the highest paid woman was entertainment presenter Claudia Winkleman, who earned less than 500,000 pounds for her work on
and other shows.
