    J.D., Scot Salem, etc. Does Scot do actual audio engineering back there? Or is he just a paid part-time 'personality'. Does Ronnie actually drive Bethward around? Is he really security? Does that mean he gets two paychecks? Does MFB actually listen to entire live show and call in for free? There are others but I'm out of time. Long time lurker, first post. Cheers.

    The real Key to obtaining pWiggy Marbles is to know and have proof of his REAL private life. That instantly triggers a healthy and handsome permanent life time pension. But it's like catching a leprechaun for his pot of gold.

    They mostly get paid in plugs or kitten books.

    I think Howard pays some guys a stipend, like 50 or 70K which in New York is like making minimum wage.

    Richard and Sal are both paid aren't they? I do remember sal taking a serious finanical hit when he started on the show, was that a bit I have no idea... JD was also meant to have been paid peanuts, but wasn't there a salary bump for the likes of sal and jd when stern moved to sirius?

    And then he has the checks made out that Sirius pays them. So when they bring up pay raises on the air he can give them the run around that he doesn't pay anyone.

    I'm sure most of the staff accepted their inadequate salary because it was augmented by being on channel radio shows and having their faces on HowardTV but now that all that is gone I'm just waiting for the dam to burst.

    What does everyone do there 5 days a week 48 weeks a year?

    50-70K is worse than minimum wage elsewhere for a man. In NYC that gets you a shitty apartment in Brooklyn or Queens (or sharing with 3 roommates downtown), access to great restaurants with no money to eat there, and access to great shows with no money to see them. You can't afford drinks in a bar because they're $10+ a beer.

    For a good looking woman, as long as you have your rent, clothes and makeup covered you're fine as you can date to eat.

    Howard pays them in peanuts, a portion of peanuts.

    Do they still have a bunch of interns? Who manages them now that Tracey Millman is gone?

    Now they can't even get on the air since The Intern Show was put on "hiatus".
