It’s believed that CBC chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge is in the top salary range, but he has declined to provide his salary when asked.

Four employees involved in CBC broadcasts earn more than $300,000 a year, taking home on average about $485,667 annually in total compensation. But the public broadcaster won’t identify who they are.

The numbers are contained in a document sent to a Senate committee that is studying the challenges facing the CBC. The document includes the salary ranges and total compensation ranges for upper management, as well as how much those executives could earn in the private sector.

Those four make up less than 1% of the 1,286 on-air personnel at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Radio-Canada, as of April 1. About 83% of on-air talent at Canada’s public broadcaster earn less than $100,000, not including overtime.

Before senators on the committee saw the documents, the CBC posted the information to its website. The website says compensation, which is beyond what unions have negotiated, is based on multiple issues, and is “the middle range” of what is offered by “comparable Canadian companies” and “a selection of Crown corporations.”

The documents do not attach names to earnings despite the fact the Senate committee is keen for this information. It’s believed that CBC chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge is in the top salary range, but he has declined to provide his salary when asked.

  1. The fact that the self important, entitled class of the CBC would use $300,000 as their top end wage number speaks volumes to me. I would suspect about 1,286 people within their ranks earn just shy of $300,000 not to mention the layers of top heavy management running around from meeting to meeting working on their next new initiative that will save us all. “Hi my name is Andrea – I’m the new Vice President of New Media and Strategic Visioning – previously I was a senior director at the Canadian Mint”.

    The fact that they have the luxury of a 1 billion dollar government subsidy they collect on top of their advertising revenue blows my mind. And they never miss an opportunity to criticize all of us for not doing more to help them. The fact that Bell/Rogers/Corus/Moses all operate without subsidies, buy and create programming that people actually watch and still make money blows my mind.

    This SCTV skit from 30 years ago is still bang on today –
