She said there needs to be a review of the business and funding model of the corporation. 

Mokonyane said this should be done by a joint team from the SABC Board, Treasury and the Communications Department. 

She also revealed the salaries of the broadcaster's senior executives, saying that the R5-million and R4-million earned by the CEO and COO respectively is still lower than the previous executives.
