Scripps CEO’s pay soars

E.W. Scripps Co. CEO Adam Symson’s compensation skyrocketed last year thanks to hefty increases in incentive pay. Downtown Cincinnati-based TV and digital media operator Scripps (NYSE: SSP) gave Symson a whopping 72 percent pay hike last year, according to the company’s recently released proxy statement. Symson made $3.4 million last year, up from a shade below $2 million the prior year.
