Who is Emily Maitlis? What is her background?

Emily Maitlis was born September 6, 1970 and is a British journalist, documentary-maker and newsreader for the BBC.

She presents news programming across the national television channels of the BBC.

This including Newsnight and bulletins on BBC One, BBC News Channel and BBC World.

She has also presented BBC Breakfast.

How much does Emily Maitlis get paid?

Emily is on the verge of quitting the BBC in a huge row over pay, after the salaries of its top stars were published.

The journalist is said to be furious at discovering Newsnight co-host Evan Davis gets up to £299,999 a year.

She did not appear on the list of 96 BBC stars earning more than £150,000 — meaning she gets less.

It has emerged she is currently off air as her contract has come to end and she has not signed a new deal.

The Sun understands bosses tried to offer Emily and other staff substantial pay rises.

A source said: “They made her an offer and she did not accept it. As it stands, her future hangs in the balance.

“Emily is totally furious as she feels like she has been lied to. For her not to be on the list is unbelievable.”
