Know what the Super Power set of media takes home!

Do you wonder whats the salary package of Disney CEO Bob Iger or Netflix CEO Reed Hastings? Well, the 2019 compensation for eight big media chiefs was up to $285.7 million, but that number might change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as per celeb news.

According to variety.com, a typical employee at AT&T, Comcast, Discovery, Disney, Fox, Lionsgate, Netflix or ViacomCBS would approximately take 410 years to match the “$37.6 million median size of the packages paid to each CEO last year”.

It stated that the 2019 compensation for eight big media chiefs officially add up to $285.7 million. But the total ignored the stock holdings.

“Hastings’ Netflix stock is worth $4.1 billion and has appreciated $1.1 billion since the beginning of 2020,” it pointed out, saying that he got $38.6 million as 2019 compensation. Fox’s Rupert Murdoch collected $5 million at News Corp. Fox paid Murdoch $42.2 million in 2019. Iger’s 2019 package was worth $47.5 million and Comcast’s Brian Roberts made $36.4 million.

“Change is coming,” said Rosanna Landis Weaver, program manager of shareholder advocacy group As You Sow, adding: “There’s a lot of populist outrage over this, and this level of inequality is destabilising.”

The report pointed out that while many top executives did forgo their salaries during the crisis, “but not the bonuses and stock awards that account for the bulk of their compensation”.

Charles Elson, director of the University of Delaware’s John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, said: “Companies may emerge from this and shrink their workforces. But somehow I think media executive salaries will return to normal.” (IANS)
