In the recording, Humphrys appeared to joke about the resignation of Carrie Gracie, who left her post as BBC News' China editor earlier this week after learning that she earned significantly less than male global editors in the corporation.
"This is not something that's going to dominate my existence".
Gracie added that she had been offered a £45,000 pay rise, to £180,000, but that it was still less than men in the same role.
In a conversation caught before the show, Humphrys, 74, and Sopel, 58, joked at Gracie's expense. "As far as I'm concerned, it's over and done with".
During the conversation, Mr Humphrys, who took a pay cut after last year's BBC rich list revealed he made up to £650,000 a year, asked Mr Sopel how much he would "hand over to Carrie Gracie to keep her".

"We are in habit, Jon and I, of winding each other up and the goal of this jokey - I emphasise jokey - exchange was a bit of mutual mickey-taking, and that is all it was", he said.

Humphrys said: "And I could save you the trouble as I could volunteer that I've handed over already more than you f***ing earn".
HUMPHRYS: "Oh dear God".
Humphrys went on to ask Sopel if he knew she was suggesting he should lose money in order to balance pay among foreign editors, to which Sopel replied: "Can we have this conversation somewhere else?" You've read the thing properly, have you?
Two of the BBC's top-earning male journalists reportedly joked about the equal pay fight of one of their female colleagues.
