Limbaugh signed an eight year contract in 2008 for $400 million plus a signing bonus of $100 million.
A normal work week is 2080 hrs (40 hours for 52 weeks).
Limbaugh's scheduled on air time is 720 hours per year. ( 5 days per week @ 3hours per day for 52 weeks = 780 hours). Assuming he takes 1 month dedicated vacation per year, we are left with 720 hours. He also seems to be absent from the daily program quite frequently utilizing stand-ins, but no adjustment has been factored in for that.
Therefore, $500 million divided by 8 years = $62,500,000 per year divided by 720 hours = $86,805 per hour. I don't know if he or Clear Channel pays for the in-house operation of the EIB network. It seems that it works both ways with other radio hosts. With the many commercial and news breaks the hourly remuneration is considerably in excess of the quoted figure. Probably double.
Do you think he wants America 's political problems solved? They are his product and we are his customers. Think about it. This is all about keeping the population at odds with each other. Talk shows are just one of the contrived tools of division. The mouthpieces are Pied Pipers leading us to drown in the waters of our frustration...our indignation...our anger. We must have animosity to prevent us from focusing on our real mission - protecting and preserving the Constitution. The only way to do that is to criminally prosecute ALL who attempt to do otherwise. The only way to do that is to take control of our country and to govern impartially. That's where our focus must be.
The numbers may be different for Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck, et al...but is it any wonder that they don't want the two party system to end? Putting Obama and his cohorts in jail would go a long way toward resolving political conflict and restoring America to its founding precepts.
Face facts. They know everything we know. They know the truth and will not step forward. These people and their ilk are not patriots. They are actually enemies of the state. Life is short and they are going to enjoy it whatever the cost to others.
By the way. The left versus the right, black versus white, ethnicity versus ethnicity, religion versus religion, the haves versus the have-not's, pro-life versus pro-abortion, are the tools that are used to divide and conquer us. Division is the weapon which will destroy us. In 1789 the Constitution became the basis for the United States federal government. I think it is much more than coincidence that such wise men as the Founding Fathers existed...or that we became the . That one word is the key to our existence or destruction.
What Limbaugh, and all the other players are doing with malice aforethought, is to create an oligarchy. Our national and international enemies are a league of criminal elitists. Their goal is Gangster Government.
United we stand - divided we fall.
