ITN’s pay gap even worse than BBC’s, and is blamed on not enough women in senior roles

The gender pay gap at ITN is more than twice that of the BBC, it has been revealed.

The broadcaster has a mean gender pay gap of 19.6% and a mean bonus gap of 77%, it confirmed on Wednesday. The median figures are 18.2% and 50% respectively.

The Channel 4 news presenter Cathy Newman called the gap “staggering” on Twitter, saying the figures demonstrated “just how pervasive inequality is”.

She added: “I’m very fortunate to be fairly paid but I will continue speaking out for the many colleagues who aren’t.”
