A former CBC News chief executive is set to receive $100,000 as a bonus for his services, while his successor is also getting $100k in compensation.
A CBC spokesman said Friday that Craig Scott, who was ousted from his position last month, will get $100K in salary and benefits over the next two years.
In the wake of the decision, a CBC spokesperson said the newsroom’s top brass will now be paid a total of $2.9 million.
The move comes on the heels of the resignations of executive director of news and information Janice Rogers and senior executive vice-president of news services Michael Calkins.
Scott was fired by the CBC in November after seven years at the helm of the news and cultural content division.
The decision was triggered by internal internal issues, the company said.
