    Rush Limbaugh signs deal thru 2016 for $400 million

    Like him or hate him, that is a crap load of money. He will be making $50 million per year.

    He will reportedly get a 9 figure signing bonus. Wow.

    Even the contract you linked isn't yet as much as what Howard Stern is getting paid; Stern earned $302 million in 2006.

    That is totally insane to me. I cannot stand either Stern or Limbaugh.

    I believe I heard Jon claim he beats him in ratings this afternoon. I would like to see documentation on that one.

    Yeah, but it's only within a certain set of demographics:

    1. Hawkeye super-fan "Wolfgang".
    2. Members of Jon Miller's immediate family.
    3. Bedridden stroke patients who have nurses who like to listen to Jim Rome, and leave the radio on the same station when they leave for the day.

    It's radio, so you've got to figure that it's all in the demographic groups.

    When you can't beat the local mexican music channel I doubt you are beating Rush on WHO.

    Clearly, Rush is worth every penny. As for Jon beating Rush, dream on. WHO wouldn't be paying Limbaugh's fees if they could put Jon Miller on for a lot less money in the 1-4 spot.

    The $400 Million is only in raw cash from the syndicator. He owns 5 minutes of advertising time on his own show which probably brings in a buttload of money in a year especially if its an on-air read.

    Howard Stern does have the television show though.
