    Hello All, the one thing I don't understand about the Stern show having listened for 20 years is how can the staff be poor if they get airtime. I know on the TV shows if the crew make an appearance on Letterman they get like $1000 per appearance. Since JD, Richard, Sal all make daily appearances wouldn't they have an appearance clause in their contract? Because the content of their lives is filling up the show. I know they can make money from outside appearances but it seem that it is a gross inequity to not pay the staff more, especially when guys like JD sound like they live in dodgy circumstances.

    Why doesn't HS give 1M of his yearly pay out in bonus to the staff rather than have them live in substandard situations? Wouldn't that basically be a form of health insurance to the show (reduction of outside risk)?

    Thanks for your answers - Oh....how much do the staff make from Gary on down...please link thread

    A couple of years ago, JD said he makes around $75,000 a year.

    Which means he's pretty much living in poverty in NYC.

    They all should be able to parlay whatever they have on the show into other money making ventures, like t-shirts or other merch or appearances,.

    Ummm, except that would be treading on howard's name, and ummm, well...

    Um, I don't think so...The median average income for a resident in NYC is $48K a year.

    Face facts, Stern is paying what appears to be competitive salaries compared to other companies in this industry.
    If he didn't, more staff would have bolted.

    They don't have contracts they have jobs where they can be fired at will. Howard has always exploited people, from retards on the phone to unpaid interns who some later became low paid employees like Grillo. Part of their job/pay is to be on the air for free when Howard wants them on. I bet he has a clause where they are not even paid for Howard TV appearances. Howard is so cheap when they had the Name that Tune type games where they had to play a few seconds of a song all you heard on E! and Howard TV was lalalalalalalalal.

    Hoo Hoo Robin , there is no money in Radio.

    Even Artie said the pay was shit on Howard TV. Jackie blocked them from using him on E! because it was such a shit deal.

    I doubt he makes that much. Plus for that money you can get a roommate in Manhattan, he lives in bumfuck and has to take a dangerous subway in. He prolly loses $20,000 in stolen Ipods a year.

    This . . . :coffee:

    P.S. They are not paid for Howard TV appearances. When Lisa Heeb asked for payment from Howard TV. Doug & Howard said that wasn't part of the deal. It's part of your employment here . . . :coffee:

    1) Howard's "staff" is better payed then most off us think. (They are SiriusXM employees. This have been confirmed by JD, High pitch Mike, Lisa G) Howards OneTwelve inc also only have 3 active employees. So... Its stated in the Sirius/Howard contract that Sirius provide a budget, the staff say that they have Sirius benefits and are Sirius employees and there is no secret Howard company that have 30+ employees. Still people continue to believe that "Howard" pays anyone.
    2) 50% working for "Howard" are Indemand employees. They also pay ok.
    3) Gary, Robin, Fred and Benjy are independent contractors and make a good living. (The surprising thing was the Benjy is a contractor. This slipped out in the last "Benjy is late" bit when Howard said that if he fired Benjy, he would not have any money to replace him, since SiriusXM pays Benjy)

    The really "fuck you" from Howard is that if you appear on his show you get zero from all the TV views and zero on replays on radio. On TV you get a small fee every time the program is broadcasted and if they use part of the footage in a best of. Imagine how rich Jackie would be for all the replays/and TV used of him.
