Cash, Nathalie Saint-Cricq did not hesitate to reveal the amount of her net salary as head of the political service of France 2.
Who earns how much? It is a subject that fascinates the crowds. However, very few are ready to reveal the amount of their payslips. “I earn my living but I have to divide by five or six compared to a premium on TF1…“, recently released Laurence Boccolini who now officiates on France 2. But this confidence is far from giving an idea of salary to readers. Nathalie Saint-Cricq, she plays it much more cash. Guest of the new podcast episode Politalks broadcast this Wednesday, June 22, the political journalist did not hesitate to reveal what she touches.
“I earn 5,600 euros net“, she says, without taboo. A substantial salary but which takes into account both her position – Nathalie Saint-Cricq is still head of the political department of France 2 – as well as her seniority within the group, since she specifies in effect having “approximately 35 years of seniority“. On the other hand, she does not receive a penny more. Not even during election evenings which end at the end of the night. Nor when she is on the airwaves of France Inter. “For example, see, I work at France Inter for free on Sundays. I never had bonuses. We don’t have an election night bonus, nor a show“, says the mother of Benjamin Duhamel. And contrary to what some detractors may suggest, it is impossible to corrupt a political journalist.
Nathalie Saint-Cricq “irritated”: “How could we be bought?”
“The ideal would be (…) that we unravel a certain number of fantasies, that we say how much we earn, that we tell thatwe don’t even have the right to receive a bouquet of flowers or a bottle of champagne from someone“, says the companion of Patrice Duhamel, before insisting: “We are absolutely forbidden to do so, I speak in the public service“. A point that is particularly close to her heart and to which Léa Salamé’s colleague wanted to “draw attention”. “Because it’s something that gets on my nerves quite often about the complacency of political journalists. We’re never boughtfirst we don’t have the right to be bought, then I don’t see how they could buy us“, she protests. This should silence many gossips.
