Jon Snow net worth: News presenter’s whopping salary - even after a 25 percent pay cut 1

Jon Snow, 72, is one of the most well loved TV news presenters in the UK, and is the longest serving presenter of Channel 4 News. After years at the top of journalism, he is said to earn an impressive salary – even after a 25 percent pay cut in recent times.

Speaking about the pay cut, which occurred in 2018, Jon told the Daily Mail: “ITN’s not so good when it comes to equal pay, but I’ve taken a gender pay cut.

“I did it as a co-operative gesture. I took the cut over two months ago — 25 per cent. Alas, contractually, I am not able to disclose my salary then or now.”

In March 2018, it was revealed women at Channel 4 were earning 28.6 percent less than their male colleagues.

Sources at ITN have said Jon earns around £1million a year, according to the Daily Mail.
