After more than a decade with E!, Catt Sadler has parted ways with the network.
Catt wrote on her blog that the decision wasn't easy for her considering E! was her dream job.
Over the course of time, Catt's role at E! grew and this year she hosted Daily pop in addition to her nighttime duties hosting E! News.
Around the time her contract came up for renewal, Catt learned that her "male equivalent at the network, Jason Kennedy, who I started with the same year and have come up with doing essentially similar jobs, if not the same job, wasn’t just making a little bit more than me but was making double my salary and has been for several years."
After learning Jason earned twice as much as her for essentially the same job, Catt's team went into negotiations seeking similar compensation.
When they weren't able to reach an agreement, however, she made the difficult decision to walk away from the network.
She said, "Not only did [E!] refuse to pay me as much as my male counterpart, but they didn’t come close nowhere close, not even remotely close."
In a statement to People Magazine, an E! spokesperson said, "E! compensates employees fairly and appropriately based on their roles, regardless of gender. We appreciate Catt Sadler’s many contributions at E! News and wish her all the best following her decision to leave the network."
Catt stressed that she doesn't blame Kennedy for the situation and says he's been a "champion" for her throughout the process.
She does, however, take issue with the system as a whole, which continues to allow huge pay disparities between men and women in the workforce.
She says, "The system’s the problem, the structure’s the problem."
