Jeremy Clarkson’s salary slashed

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson makes an estimated £2,000,000 per year. Because of the financial realities of a hurting global economy, that is all set to change.

If reports are correct, Clarkson stands to lose up to £500,000 because of cost cutting by the BBC. While The Beeb is honoring all current contracts, the world’s largest public broadcaster is looking to save £20 million by reducing salaries. Anyone making more than £100,000 per year will get a 25% pay cut when their contract is renewed. However, if the reports of Clarkson’s profit sharing from the Top Gear show are true, he won’t be hurting too badly from the pay reduction.
