Catt Sadler is saying goodbye to E! News after learning that her co-host, Jason Kennedy, makes nearly DOUBLE her salary!
NYDailyNews.com says that while Catt was negotiating her new contract with E! News, she said that she found out that: “he [Jason] wasn’t just making a little more than I was. In fact, he was making close to double my salary for the past several years.”
She chose to leave the network after finding out the news and is sharing her story to shed more light on the gender wage gap.
She was also quick to defend Jason Kennedy, saying: “It’s important that people don’t vilify him because he isn’t the problem — the system’s the problem, the structure’s the problem.”
Catt, a single mother of two, is currently looking for another job within television.

I couldn’t let today get away without wishing one of my best friends in the world a Happy Happy Birthday. @thejasonkennedy, you are a true class act and one of the finest humans I know. I’m so grateful our paths led us to E more than a decade ago. What a gift to be your tv partner in crime but also gain a friend for life. You’re the best, JK! 🎈
