ROBIN Roberts wants a pay rise!
The Good Morning America co-anchor earns $6 million a year, while her rival Matt Lauer at NBC’s Today banks a whopping $25 million annually.
Since ABC’s GMA has reigned as the top morning program since September 2012, friends think Robin — who’s negotiating a new contract — should be compensated accordingly.
“Robin is a big part of why ‘GMA’ is now No. 1 in morning news,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“She realizes that she won’t score the sweetheart deal Matt got, but she still should be paid at least double her current salary.
“Robin is loved and highly valued by her bosses, but a slew of contracts are coming up for renewal on GMA.
“Besides Robin, the network is negotiating with Lara Spencer and Josh Elliot. And George Stephanopoulos’ contract will expire a year from now.
“Certainly, everyone will be offered raises given the show’s success. But if they give Robin $12 million or more, they can’t low-ball the others.
“Robin is modest, but she knows she deserves more money. Certainly, there’s no way Matt Lauer should be paid quadruple when she and GMA have more viewers.”
