Im not buying it.
Well it all worked out in the end. He hasn't done anything in years .
he started up in Washington in 1981 when he was 26 -- he probably worked for 5 years where he made little, which is not unusual for 20-somethings
He signed with WNBC at 28 for a five year contract worth $1 million. I mean $200,000 a year in the early 80s is probably like $500-600k a year now.
Howard loves pulling the victim card.
i.e. He's Jewish.
It's true. By the early to mid 80s, he was making fantastic money. Not sure what the fuck he is crying about since he has been making a really good living in radio for at least 30 years.
He said that he made nothing ALL the way up until his Sirius announcement yet through Stuttering John interviews and Adam Carrollas mouth....we learned he was making multi-millions per year for quite some time
To Howard, anything under 100 million is chump change.
He was making a hundred grand a week from syndication, minimally
I'll bet after the first year or two in Washington, he still made 2 or 3x the average man's salary of the day. I think thats part of our dissolution with Howard. We always knew he was rich, but he at least convinced us that his life was just like most normal guys, and that he had normal guy problems. But really he's been ultra wealthy for years, and just recently, he can't pull of the regular guy routine.
The unbelievable part is when he says "I made something like 70,000 a year in Washington" like somehow money in the early 80's is worth EXACTLY the same as it is today.
Hey, 70,000 today is not bad money for a 20 something year old. It's probably more than what most people make.
$200K in 1980 dollars is nothing to him. (the average new car in 1980 cost $7,500)
