Snow takes a gen­der pay cut

The Herald - - NEWS -

CHAN­NEL 4 News pre­sen­ter Jon Snow has taken a “gen­der pay cut”, the news­reader has said.

Snow, 70, is thought to have been one of the high­est-paid news­read­ers in Bri­tain.

He said: “I’ve taken a gen­der pay cut.

“I did it as a co-op­er­a­tive ges­ture. I took the cut over two months ago, 25 per cent. Alas, con­trac­tu­ally, I am not able to dis­close my salary then or now.”

Chan­nel 4, which em­ploys Snow, has pre­vi­ously said it is “un­ac­cept­able” that the chan­nel has a gen­der pay gap of 28.6%.

ITN, which makes daily news pro­grammes for ITV, Chan­nel 4 and Chan­nel 5, re­vealed it had a 19.6% gen­der pay gap.
