While we in the UK are concerning ourselves with the news that many BBC executives earn over £100,000, with Director General Mark Thompson, topping the list at £647,000, their counterparts in the US blow them right out of the salary pond.
CEO at CBS Leslie Moonves, made a whopping $31.9 million last year, followed by Disney CEO Robert Iger at $30.6 million and Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes at $19.9 million.
All companies, ‘struggling’ to find the money to make programmes, but kinda puts the Brit salaries into perspective.
Now excuse me while I book my ticket!
