It's nice to be CEO. With an annual salary of $3.5M, and a bonus of about 8 times the annual salary (a cash award of $27.5M), and the rest coming in stock gifts, just $0.1M short of $70M. Who wouldn't want to be CEO under the thumb of Sumner Redstone, who received a total of about $21M. SR's only discernible chore seems to be feeding his tropical fish in sunny Los Angeles on a daily basis. Shucks, let the stockholders eat cake.
NOT NASTY. PER INTERNET RULES, YOU'RE YELLING IN CAPS. BUT IF YOU SAY YOU'RE OLD, I UNDERSTAND. I'M OLD, TOO, AND YELL WAY TOO MUCH. I'M OFTEN HEARD SAYING, "HUH?" AND "WHAT?" SO YELL ALL YOU WANT.
I'm pretty old. I worked in radio. I'll type in caps, too. It's probably easier for you to read. Les told me that cbs signed a deal---that's a deal---for rebroadcast/transmission fees for all lucy shows (not just "i love lucy"). The revenues the company reported from this deal per last year was not over or at a million. It was under a million. Going forward lucy is a gold mine. His point was well taken regarding value of owning a-list content. It keeps giving. He was part of a panel discussion. I was the panel moderator.
Will bet you that your figure of 500,000 for lucy is wrong. It was in the millions. I wanted to say $50 million but not sure so i said 5 million. By thw way i type in caps because i was a radio operator wand we typed in caps. This was before you were born. Nothing wrong with caps. If it was lower case you would have a point
