QUESTION FOR DAN O’DAY:
Is there a place to find a good barometer for, say, morning show salaries on the average in the top 30 markets??
Each year Radio & Records publishes an overview of radio salaries. Within any given market - even the top 30 - you will find a wide disparity of salaries.
The only other option is to ask jocks you know in other markets what kind of money they & others make. (The problem with this method is:
- All jocks lie about their salaries.
- Although they usually are willing to make an authoritative-sounding guess, they rarely know what other jocks make.
