      Hello All
      I can understand some of the salaries paid to presenters like John Humphrys & Huw Edwards
      but I cannot see how they can justify Chris Evans @£2.2 Million a year and Lineker £1.8
      and who the Hell is ' Claudia Wilkerberry' ???? What ever she doe's it's a Nice Little earner
      wonder what Sky pay their Top presenters..................

      just a Thought...............Off to see if I can get a Pay Rise........
