BBC salaries: The highest earning on-air talent at the BBC for 2021/22

BBC’s top earning on-air talent has been revealed as part of the annual report.

The corporation’s annual report for 2021/22, which also marks its centenary, shows four out of the top 10 best paid names have seen their salaries fall.

This year’s top 10 features fewer women that last year, dropping from four to three.

The BBC has seen a number of high-profile on-air departures over the last year, with Emily Maitlis, Jon Sopel, Andrew Marr and Dan Walker all leaving for rival broadcasters.

It comes after Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries announced earlier this year that the BBC’s licence fee will be frozen under inflation for the next two years.
