He's taken a pay cut . By a huge coincidence Zoe Ball just about becomes the highest paid presenter with her pay rise, and the BBC have been banging on that a woman is now the highest paid presenter.
Well that's settled, absolute parity in pay for both sexes. Let's hear no more from the ladies that there's an unfair pay gap.
I actually think this is bad for women in the long run.

Zoe ball is shite as a presenter lol the bbc are truly fucked
Yes, she just yaps constantly. Seems to think thats what you must do on radio. Doesn't seem to really care if anyone's listening. It's all about her, non stop drivel. I always turn her off now until Ken's on.

Sensational!

Some report about some ladies losing a court battle that they have to work until their 67. I guess the equality argument has a cut off somewhere.

Zoe Ball is the most inept and bloody annoying radio presenter I've known in my life. Every guest she goes " I'm your biggest fan and I love you so much" , Christ she can't speak to anyone without telling them " your the best ever and I truely love everything you do". Even to the traffic and weather people she goes totally overboard. Christ how far does she want to go up their arse with her unrelenting " your amazing" bullshit.
I switched off ages ago, I have radio 6 on going to work, and coming home, they have great music on and the presenters are normal.
The world has gone mad if the BBC are paying such an inept presenter as Ball, 1.2 million a year

She’s an improvement on Chris Evans. In as much as Chris Evans is someone who had nothing to say and said it too loudly, Zoe Ball is someone with nothing to say and says it quietly. Solution? Retune into Absolute radio and don’t lose any sleep over it. If worrying about how much Zoe Ball earns compared literally anyone in the world is of a major concern to you you’re living in your own little world because there’s enough real shit going down in the world right now that this is of no importance whatsoever.

Boring story really. Started with her thinking I was a member of the boyband McFly (slightly insulting) I said no i just work in editing. She said 'oh right, hotty in the editing suite.'

I used to work at the BBC for context.

I think you've got a story there about sexual harassment. Senior figure using their position to make inappropriate comments...

Ha I did think how it would sound if an old geezer presenter said it to some young girl in the edit suites, double standards hey. But alas I am a sucker for a compliment so I let it slide.

And Tony if you could point out where I said I was worrying over how much the BBC pays her, I'd be most grateful .

Over a £1m to just hit a few buttons and engage in inane chat. No-one listens to R1 to hear presenters, just play the bloody records!

She's an improvement in the same way as treading in horse shit is marginally better than treading in dog shit .
