Catt Sandler left E! News two months ago after she became aware of a massive wage gap between herself and her male co-host. 

In a statement posted on her website, the 43-year-old news anchor confirmed that she made the decision after learning of a “massive disparity in pay” between her and co-host Jason Kennedy.

'An executive from E! brought something alarming to my attention — namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,' she wrote at the time.

Catt went on to reveal the scale of the pay gap, explaining how her male co-anchor had been earning almost twice her salary for the past number of years.

According to a personal essay written by the presenter:

'For me, in those moments, it was important to explain how I had been wronged and how I knew in my core that to stay would mean collaborating with an evil system,' she wrote.

'Swallowing my values was not an option. What happened to me was unfair.'

'After exhausting all attempts to make things right, I asked the decision makers face to face, “Why?” “Why is he, in your opinion, worth so much more than I am? Is he doubly good at his job?'

'Their response? “We’re obviously just looking through a different lens than you.” Yes, the “he’s a male and therefore gets preferential treatment” lens.'

Here here, Catt.

'More recently, when E reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he 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.'

The presenter said that she would have loved to continue her role at E!, but she felt obligated not to let this issue go unmentioned.

'Leaving E was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made, but your messages and heartfelt comments are comforting and affirm for me that I made the right decision,' she told her fans via Instagram.

'So many of you have similar stories, similar struggles, legitimate frustrations and I want you to know I hear you and feel for you. As a result, I have a renewed sense of purpose and genuine passion to right the wrongs.'

Catt requested that her fans do not blame her co-host Jason Kennedy for the network's pay decisions. 

'We are stronger together and I feel your strength at my core. If I had one ask, it is to please not place blame on my friend Jason Kennedy.'

'He has done right by me in every respect. It hurts me deeply to see that some are vilifying him.'

'I repeat, his hands are tied on this matter and if you’re angry – rightfully so – direct that emotion at the decision makers who failed us, not him.'

Catt Sadler has left her role at E! News after more than a decade with the US television network.

The star revealed her departure in a tweet posted on Monday saying: “It’s true. Today will be my last day on #DailyPop and @enews. I hope you’ll tune in so I can thank you for the memories. I love you guys SO much it hurts.”

In a statement posted on her website, the 43-year-old news anchor confirmed that she made the decision after learning of a “massive disparity in pay” between her and co-host Jason Kennedy.

“An executive from E! brought something alarming to my attention — namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,” she wrote.

Catt went on to reveal the scale of the pay gap, explaining how her male co-anchor had been earning almost twice her salary for the past number of years.

“More recently, when E! reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he 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 continued.

“Know your worth.  I have two decades experience in broadcasting and started at the network the very same year as my close friend and colleague that I adore.”

She continued: “It was important for me to explain my departure. I did not want to disappear from your television screens and have you wonder why. Thank you for your precious time all these years. Thank you for the support. Thank you for the constant exchange of ideas on social media as well. This chapter is over and a new one begins.”

According to reports, while Catt did attempt to negotiate for equal pay, the network offered her a number that was “not even remotely close” to Jason's salary.

Speaking to People magazine the mother-of-two said: "It's almost insulting because you know you work really hard. I'm a single mom of two kids. I've given my all to this network.

"I've sacrificed time away from my family and I have dedicated my entire career to this network. And when you learn something like that, it makes you feel very small and underappreciated and undervalued. It's heartbreaking…”

Fan were quick to offer Catt messages of love and support:
