Mar 13, 2019  •  Post A Comment

The salaries paid to on-air contributors are typically kept under wraps across cable news channels, but a new report by The Hollywood Reporter notes that because at least 10 members of the Trump administration have been contributors to Fox News, a number of their salaries have been revealed in financial disclosures.

“Among the eight Trump staffers who were forced to disclose what Fox News paid them to contribute, salaries averaged about $141,000 and ranged from a low of $31,336 for New York socialite Georgette Mosbacher (who serves as ambassador to Poland) to a high of $569,423 for John Bolton, who now serves as Donald Trump’s national security adviser,” THR reports.

“Another U.S. ambassador, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, earned a salary of $175,000 while working for the network between May 2013 and 2017,” the report adds. “Richard Grenell, now the U.S. ambassador to Germany, earned a salary of $80,000 while serving as a Fox News contributor for about three and a half years, until December 2016. K.T. McFarland, who withdrew her nomination to serve as ambassador to Singapore, earned $63,518 per year during her nearly seven-year run as a Fox News national security analyst.”

THR adds: “Anthony Scaramucci, who had to file a financial disclosure form as a precondition for his 11 days of service as White House communications director, revealed that he earned $88,461 as a Fox Business Network contributor.”

  1. Nice gig if you can get it. I suppose that the contributors to any of the major news networks make similar fees based on the amount that they are contributing. And don’t forget that most of them use the publicity to get good speaking and other appearance fees.
