Gotta keep an eye on the temp workers, the BBC discovers, as it announces the discovery of the "mole" who leaked the confidential salary figures for its star radio personalities to tabloids.
A temp in the network's business affairs department, SAM WALTON, has been fingered as the source for the information by an internal review; the BBC says that WALTON allegedly took cash payments from the papers in exchange for the information that revealed the salaries of TERRY WOGAN, CHRIS MOYLES, JONATHAN ROSS, and other personalities. The salary information, which also includes some TV salaries, have been appearing in the SUN and MIRROR for several weeks.
