BBC's John Humphrys says pay cut is 'fair'

John Humphrys has said that his pay cut is "fair" and that he feels that it was "entirely proper" for him to take a pay cut.

Speaking to the BBC, the Today programme presenter would not disclose his salary, but when asked about reports it had been reduced to around £300,000, responded, "somewhat less".

He said he had taken three pay cuts.

Last year the BBC disclosed Humphrys was paid between £600,000 - £649,000.
