  •  Mark - I had always read a lower number (0+ / 0-)

    Limbaugh's last contract was reported at eight years and $400 million, with $100 million up front. That would make his annual pay about $37 million. If you have a source for the $67 million per year I would be interested in reading it. There is no doubt that Flush Rush has had a dramatic impact on Limbaugh, and AM radio including all conservative and progressive talk shows. Limbaugh's next contract will be for a fraction of the current one, which expires in just a few years.

    •  Does he have other income besides that contract? (0+ / 0-)

      I would not be totally surprised if he sits on a few boards... is in some hedge funds where the insiders get extra gravy... and along the way has a lot of wealthy insiders cutting him in on things just for elbow rubbing bragging rights....

      and those speaking fees too...

      •  IreGyre - Limbaugh is not on any for-profit (0+ / 0-)

        public company boards (he is too polarizing) but I am sure he has substantial investment income. I am just curious where the number $67 million comes from. Limbaugh may be on some non-profit boards where he is a big donor.
