    OK, we all know Howard and Robin are worth mega millions. Fred and Booey too. Who else on the HSS is a millionaire?

    At least one member of the Shed believes Benjy is worth $2 million. What about Sal and Richard? Jason? Will? Is JD's poverty shtick just that?

    Out of the "lower level" people, I think the only one who makes a decent living is Benjy (and Jon Hein but he made his money elsewhere). I think Benjy makes enough to live comfortably in Manhattan but not enough to save much and retire.

    Sal, Richard, Will, Jason, and JD all probably make just enough to make ends meet.

    Benjy gets paid extremely well as the Howard Stern show writer and he's been there for years as it. :grad:

    Well, when you're single with no kids and have anything approaching a decent NYC job, it's not that hard to live in Manhattan. Its when you get married and your wife squeezes out a few puppies that the bills start to skyrocket and suddenly paying $3500 per month for a one-bedroom apartment becomes a problem. Benjy is around 46 or 47 now and never been married or had kids. He should have a lot of money socked away.

    Excluding his primary residence, I doubt Gary is a millionaire.

    I'm sure he is. He has been making 500k+ for a while now.

    howard, robin, fred, and gary(if he was smart) are "millionaires"....gary is on the cusp though because he has lots of expenses (as does fred but fred has been making more for a longer amount of time).

    i would imagine gary has been putting away the maximum on his 401k (again if he was smart)his income is probably the highest it will ever be so he needs the tax deferment now.

    No way does Gary make $5 million a year. I thought Artie said that he saw his pay stub and intimated it was about $1 million a year. Gary would be living in a far better house than he is in now if he was making $5 million a year. According to public records, he bought his house for $1.6 million.

    BTW, I am sure that under the new contract, Gary, Fred, and Robin all took pay cuts along with Howard for the reduced schedule.

    I suspect that in about 10 years we'll all be millionaires. Of course a loaf of bread will be $2500.

    I believe Artie revealed that it was $500-600k.

    I make seven figures a year too - if you count the numbers after the decimal....

    When did Artie make this revelation? Keep in mind, Artie's been off the show for over four years now - his information is quite dated.

    A couple of years into Sirius. I assume Gary makes LESS now than he did then.

    Maybe but he must have been socking big money away at some point. Gary's been with Howard for almost 30 years. I can't see how he's not making at least $1 million.
