Chris Moyles has taken a pay cut and signed on to stay with Radio 1 for another year according to the Sun newspaper. It’s alleged that his £630,000-a-year salary has been whittled down to around £500,000.
A BBC source told the paper: "Chris is Radio 1's biggest star, so we were trying to work out a deal that makes everyone happy.
"The negotiations were tense, but we all agreed that one more year on the breakfast show would be the best thing for Chris and Radio 1. Neither side was ready to stop just yet."
The news comes the day after Moyles railed against what he saw as the BBC’s compliance obsessed culture.
