John the Chanter (died 1191) was a medieval Bishop of Exeter.
John's exact background is unclear. He may be the same person as the John Planeta who was a clerk of Thomas Becket's during Becket's exile, but the connection is not proven. All that is known is that he was elderly when he was consecrated.
