Top man

When Ian Katz was appointed Editor of Newsnight back in May 2013, a BBC spokesman said "I don't think we'll be publishing the details of his salary, to be honest. We release the top BBC salaries on our website, but that's as far as we go."

Now Ian's revealed as on a top BBC salary - disclosed at £150,600. This leaves him some headroom to improve, should he land the Guardian editorship; it also makes you wonder what they're paying BBC editors with a decent-sized audience.

In other disclosures, Alan Davey, now ensconced at Radio 3 working to slap down any Classic FM tendencies, has landed at £170k, above Radio 5Live's Jonathan Wall, but behind all the other network controllers.

Joe Godwin, new Director of the BBC Academy (and Peter Salmon's Crown Prince of Birmingham) is on £189,800 -  a tad down on Anne Morrison's £217k.

Fiona Campbell, new head of Current Affairs, News, has been placed on £150k.   Jim Gray is now re-styled as her deputy, on £155k. Ceri Thomas, formerly Jim's boss, now runs one bit of Current Affairs, Panorama, on a package of £166,448.
