BBC’s senior managers and executive board face cutbacks

The BBC Trust has announced sweeping cuts are on the way for the upper levels of the BBC, including cutting 100 senior managers and instituting a pay freeze on its executive board for three more years. These moves are the latest following criticism from both the Labour and Conservative parties over executive pay. The results of the cutbacks will reduce the £79m annual pay bill of more than 600 highly paid executives by £20m over the next three and a half years.
