LONDON (Brand Republic) - BSkyB chief executive Tony Ball has sold 570,000 shares in the satellite broadcaster, earning himself £5.95m before tax.

The disposals came after analysts warned that media companies’ earnings could be affected by a softening in the advertising market. The company’s chief financial officer Martin Stewart also joined the rush to sell. He sold 237,500 shares.

Yesterday, the Office of Fair Trading announced it was launching an investigation into the company after allegations from rival ONdigital that BSKyB is abusing its market dominance.
