Chris Evans has spoken out after announcing that he’s leaving BBC Radio 2. The presenter recently revealed that he will leave the BBC for Virgin Radio. Now, he’s made a couple things clear as to why he moved. “I've just got to tell you it's nothing to do with money. There is no rift here whatsoever”, Evans told listeners, as picked up by BBC News. “My bosses... have been nothing but absolutely gorgeous to me as far as what I announced yesterday is concerned”.
Evans went on to clarify: “if you make a decision just based on money when you don't have to, that will more than likely 99.9% come back to bite you where the sun don't shine, and I've always gone with that”. The BBC reports that from 2017 to 2018, Evans was paid £1.66 million for hosting his Radio 2 show. Tabloids are speculating that Evans will be paid £2 million with Virgin Radio.
Evans has worked with BBC Radio 2 for 13 years. He has presented ‘The Chris Evans Breakfast Show’ since 2010.
