Jonathan Ross

Got a bit worked up about my hard earned money paying Jonathan Ross's over inflated wages so wrote to the BBC telling them if they continue to employ him I will stop buying a licence to pay his wages.

I was somewhat suprised by the reply I got and it went some way to make me feel better as they clearly have simalar thoughts about him that I do.

May I add nobody has ever annoyed me enough to contact the BBC until Jonathan Ross came along



Here is the reply :


Thanks for contacting the BBC.


We understand you feel Jonathan Ross shouldn't be employed by the BBC.


Jonathan Ross is no longer a BBC employee as such, and no longer presents his Friday night entertainment programme or his Radio 2 programme. He is however, contracted by the BBC for the presentation of the British Academy Film Awards, and has been for the last 5 years. Although he isn’t the face of BBC films anymore, he is a hugely knowledgeable expert on World Cinema which is quite a specialist subject matter. When it was announced that Jonathan was leaving, it was made clear that he would still present various projects including the British Academy Film Awards and projects like The World Cinema Awards.


Please be assured we've registered your complaint on our audience log. This is a daily report of audience feedback that's circulated to many BBC staff, including members of the BBC Executive Board, channel controllers and other senior managers.


The audience logs are seen as important documents that can help shape decisions about future programming and content.

Thanks again for taking the time to contact us with your concerns.


Kind Regards

Robert Regan

I actually dont mind the man, and he even went up in my estimation when he did his weekend with Bear Grylls, theres certainly far worse on the tv than him.


In fact he came across as a pretty decent guy!

I think you need to get out more. He was sacked over the Sachs prank phone call with Russel Brand AGES ago.


I can never understand people who complain about TV. Turn over or off :yawn:

Read the post properly before commenting Colin !

He is still getting licence fee money from the BBC and that is my money

it had nothing to do with getting out or turning off the TV as I have to pay as long as I have a Tv in my house


We pay their wages so we have a duty to point out when they are wasting OUR money dont we ?

I don't mind Jonathan Ross either, I agree with Polecat - we have no choice but to pay for a TV licence, whether we choose to turn it off or not!


I object to anyone being paid exorbitant wages for doing their job - media personalities, sportsmen/women, politicians, bankers etc etc. Ok, so some of them may have a short working life in their chosen career but they can always do an ordinary job just like we do when they can no longer play golf or whatever.


I can choose to watch/not watch sport but I can't choose not to pay the licence fee!!

Yikes. I think he's funny & tbh done very well for his speech impediment considering the BBC's old English brigade.


Didn't like the fact he cheated on his wife, afterall she built his career (IIRC).


He's the only person to get A class interviewees on his show, excluding Paxman & the gay Irish bloke...

No wages paid. Independent contractor, tendering in an open market.


They ain't wasting my money on him, so they ain't wasting our money, they are wasting your bit in your opinion.


They are wasting my bit, in my opinion, with all the antique, property, gardening, decorating and cooking shows. Downton Abbey, Eastenders, all the Football and Golf.


I like the news, politics, science and history they provide and the occassional comedy show.


It's a public service broadcasting company so there's bound to be programmes and people on it that don't suit all.


With what's going on in the world at the moment I think your lobbying of the BBC to not employ a specific Light Entertainment contractor is an indication of what's important in your life.


I stand by the comment "You need to get out more" in my opinion 8-)

A minster once said that the TV licence fee was well worth it's money because of BBC's imaginative & creative programs,, well that was then & this is now,, Iv'e seen better creations in my grandsons nappy & programs seem to have the imaginative creation of a gold fish,,,,,,,

The new Sherlock series was amazing imho

I know the BBC didnt directly make Rome but that series was one of the best I have ever seen

I do watch a lot of comedy on iPlayer so I get my moneys worth if we compare it to SKY!

Now they can go take a running jump of a cliff and then I say the ground is to good for em!
