    I’ve seen a few hints at how much the presenters are on, so here is the question;

    How much do SkyNews presenters get??

    Why do you need to know?

    Are you willing to declare your income to the Group?

    Jeez!! :huh:
    It don’t take much to hit a nerve here does it?

    For what it’s worth, I don’t need to know, I just thought it might be an interesting topic to raise!

    Jeez!

    Well I need to know because I’m considering becoming a Sky News Presenter.

    But it needs to pay more than what I get now, as I need the extra money to buy some presentable outfits; plus there has to be a “celebrity payment allowance” built-in to the amount, for dealing with people recognising me in the street and thinking they’re my friend, just because they’ve seen me on TV.

    Not that I’d walk the streets anymore, nor shop with the ‘hoi polloi’, having become a minor celebrity.

    I reckon any chimp can sit in the studio, in front of a big teleprompter and parrott the same old drivel for hours on end – especially as it’s the same stuff repeated every few minutes. Plus I wouldn’t listen to any replied from my ‘breaking news’ interviewees, because all I really want to say to them is: ‘so is there a split between Blair and Brown then ?’ – irrespective of the reply I get.

    I might get stretched interviewing somebody, or reading what the papers say about a Spice girl’s new body-shape; but I’m sure I could cope.

    N.B. Some or all of the above may actually be in jest…

    Cheers, P.

    P.S. I read here somewhere they’re all on about ?100K – is that right then ? Some thread here said Sky News loses money, perhaps becasue they’re paying the presenters too much ?!

    I think the lower end of the salary is about ?100,000 per year, but the top bracket (the likes of Jeremy and Kay) is closer to ?500,000 per year. The freelancers (usually the night shift lot) get paid hourly. Or something like that.

    Sounds a lot, but as I think I said a while back, it’s peanuts to Sir Trevor McDonald’s (of ITV) reported ?2 million per year! B)

    So that’s why the Night shift lot work 6+ hour stretches and don’t mind repeating the same stuff all the time.. the more hours you do, the more you’re paid… !

    What sort of hourly rate, d’you know, ? Equivalent to ?100K+ per year , or is it higher as it’s “contracting” work without pension/holidays, etc. ?

    Cheers, P.

    In Ireland, the top presenters(in terms of “celebrity”)-Bryan Dobson and Anne Doyle get paid ?120,000 a year..

    It is HIGHLY unlikely that Kay or Jeremy get paid half a million a year.
    The freelancers get paid PER SHIFT

    I remember reading that Adam Bolton is earning around ?200.000 when there was speculation a few years back that he might quit and work in Downing Street. Speaking of Sir Trevor, he’s coming to my university in November to view the Broadcast Journalism department, so hopefully i’ll get to have a quick chat with him.

    Adam Boulton is on, according to Private Eye couple of editions ago, ?480,000 plus clothing allowance.
