MIKE NORTH

WSCR AM talkshow host Mike North is the latest sports talker to be offered a paycut by his employer.

North currently makes a reported $1.5 million a year according to today’s Chicago Tribune. Station management is negotiating with North (whose contract is up July 1st) to cut that salary nearly in half.

A former hot dog vendor, North  has been getting clobbered in the rating by the syndicated “Mike and Mike” show on ESPN affiliate WMVP recently.

The Tribune article quotes an “industry insider” as saying,

 

“They know they’re getting killed with North in mornings, but they still want him to have a presence.”
