Default WFAN Salaries?

I am dying to know roughly what the WFAN host's salaries are.

Anybody have any of this info?

I seem to remember Chris alluding to the fact that he made $165,000 a year but that seemed too low.

Cheers

Both M&MD in the $1.5-$2M range. Maybe $165k is the YES piece which is an add on to their base WFAN salaries.

Could've sworn the YES deal for each of them was $200k/year.

Aren't you the same poster who wanted to know what their wives looked like? Does it really matter to you how much they make?

Dog's 165K was him joking back a few months ago...
Benigno I'd say uh 500K is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy high lol...he prob makes 100K...I don't know but maybe around that area. Also, guys like Malusis make peanuts...really not that much more than most of us are making on here. The producers also don't make much at all...

Joe has been there for 10 years. There's no way he only makes 100k a year.

NO WAY!

This may be irrelevant but a few years ago Michael Kay said Bobby Valentine made $500,000 a year on ESPN's Baseball Tonight. I know when M&MD had their first year anniversary, the Daily News said they each made $150,000. Both of them ridiculed that figure, said "we don't even make half of that."

i'd say Joe B makes $125k for his show.
sommers gets paid per diem $40

i met a guy in college who was a producer for a radio station in chicago. he said he made $80k, no way those fools behind the glass make anymore than that.

Default Chuck McCord's WFAN Salary

At one time both Imus and McCord owned Rolls Royces. When Imus decided to become a cowboy he dumped the Rolls and purchased the ranch in New Mexico to go along with his home in Westport, CT and his apartment in Manhattan. He now drives SUVs or get limoed around. Yet as recently as a year ago, Chuck alluded to rarely using "the Rolls", thus letting listeners know in his not-so-subtle way that he still owned one.

He is making a helluva lot more than 200K and has so for well over 20 years.

Slight correction, IIRC, McCord bought the Rolls from Imus. Either way though, the point stands... McCord had enough dough to buy a Rolls Royce.

Hey, they talk about how much money athletes make. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Anyway, I think M&MD get paid $1.5 million a year. Whatever the number is, they both have the same salary. I would think there would be hell if one made more than the other, because of how massive their egos are. Regardless, they are overpaid. They shoudn't get paid that much to do something we do here for free. And for the most part, we are much better prepared than they are.

I'm pretty sure Francesa makes a little more than Russo. I remember reading something like Francesa makes $1.75mil while Russo makes $1.6mil. I remember that striking me as odd.
