There's a day or two still in this one.

Below, Charlie Stayt #notonthelist and Naga Munchetty #probably only on the list cos she did Strictly, discuss the salaries of Dan Walker #on the list partially because of Football Focus and Louise Minchin #notonthelist

Radio 2 ain't cheap, is it ?  But is Vanessa really worth more than Ken Bruce because she does a Radio London phone-in ?  Are these salaries the cumulative decisions of James Purnell, Director of Radio & Education - £295k; Bob Shennan, Director of Radio & Music - £291k; his deputy Graham Ellis £212k; or Lewis Carnie, Head of Radio 2 - #notonthelist ?

We finally discover that Jonty Claypole, Director of Arts (the whole lot) is on £150k+, yet Alan Yentob, who edits one arts strand, and has made just two new films this calendar year, is on £200k+.

Over at 5Live, there'll be tensions because Breakfast's Rachel Burden is #notonthelist, yet weekend late host Stephen Nolan, who also does local tv and radio in Northern Ireland, is apparently worth more than £400k to BBC audiences.

The BBC knew these lists were coming - Karen Bradley insisted on them publicly in mid-September last year. Since then, there've been some adjustments - but not enough.
