Re: How much do sports reporters make?
One of my best friends is just finishing up his first contract as an ESPN News anchor and he makes just north of $100,000. Depending on the market, most local TV anchors make anywhere between $30,000 and $70,000 to start (some higher and some lower). Radio is pathetic and unless you are in a major market or syndicated, it's hard to make a living solely of the earnings.

"He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.
"Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."
