Zoe Ball’s requested pay cut at the BBC has been approved and confirmed in the latest Annual Report.
As reported late last year, Zoe requested a pay cut when agreeing on a new two-year deal with the BBC as Radio 2’s Breakfast show host.
It has been confirmed today that this reduced her pay from £1.36m in 19/20 by 28% to £980k.
The figure in the Annual Report this year (£1.13m) represents just a few months of the new deal and the reduction that Zoe requested as part of it.
The BBC told RadioToday: “Zoe Ball is a world-class broadcaster hosting Radio 2’s flagship show and her professionalism and commitment to the Breakfast Show is extraordinary.
“She’s hugely talented and has made the show her own, with many millions of listeners tuning in each morning to the nation’s most listened to Breakfast Show.”
