NAO to probe salaries at BBC

NAO to probe salaries at BBC

Audit watchdog will look at pay to top presenters

High salaries paid to top presenters like
Jonathan Ross and
Jeremy Paxman by the
BBC will be investigated by
public spending watchdog, the National Audit Office.
The probe will be part of a report into value for money, to see if the high
salaries paid to top presenters are justified.

The review comes as the BBC asks that more money be put into broadcasting –
it wants the license fee to be increased by 2013 from the current £131.50 to
£180.

Friday night talk show host Jonathan Ross has reportedly earned £18m for a
three-year deal.
