Between his salary and the large amount of live endorsements; Greg Budell (NewsTalk 107.9) might be the only jock making near $100,000. He's also the hardest working jock I know, doing 3 shows (two of them live) a day.
Holy shit! I would have never guessed someone working radio in Montgomery, that didn't at least have ownership of his station, would be able to make close to 100k/year without simulcasting or syndicating their show to other markets. According to his biography he came from WLS, so he was properly trained... how the hell did he wind up in the Gump?
I'm not familiar with Greg Budell, is he working so hard that it's dangerous to his health?
I never thought there was any decent money for employees in Montgomery media unless it was an old time jock still doing a major air shift while also running some other important position like perhaps programming while at the same time helping set up sales for locals who have known his voice for decades at WBAM or WLWI.
Good for him... assuming his job isn't killing him.
