The list of highly paid hosts include Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. It also includes a non-political entity: Ryan Seacrest. Here’s the full breakdown of how this group collectively earned more than $280 million–and details of how they’re stretching themselves beyond the car radio. And in the spirit of the 10-second sound bite, here’s the nitty gritty: the five things you most absolutely know about those hosts.

I love me some Stern and I think he should be making more money because more people should be listening to him. He is a true American that believes in the people standing for their rights.

In the hosting game, it pays to be brutally honest. The two men who top our annual list of the Highest-Paid TV Personalities have each earned millions by being, what many people would consider, honest to the point of rudeness.

We wanted to know: How high would Stern rank if he were a corporate CEO? It turns out — very, very high.

In fact, only two CEOs last year made over $90 million — David Zaslav of Discovery Communications and Michael Fries of Liberty Global. Only two. But overall, Stern will earn more than nearly every single executive in the country.

The list measures estimated pretax income from June 1, 2015-June 1, 2016 before deducting management and legal fees, according to Forbes. Figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo, Pollstar and IMDB, and interviews with agents, analysts and “industry observers.”

Stern is the man. If you are ever having a down day turn him on and you will not be disappointed. He holds up satellite radio by himself.

This was no surprise for me. He owns this spot by a wide margin. Even people who don't like Stern like Stern. That is when you know you are popular.

In fact, Stern said on his radio show Monday that a massive job offer recently fell into his lap."My agent called me with an opportunity that is so mind-blowing -- like, it would be the dream job of all time for me," Stern said.
He didn't divulge any specifics about the opportunity, though he joked that he had been offered a gig on the embattled E! program,"Fashion Police."

No surprise there. The"shock jock" is still very entertaining. His channel on siruis radio is probably my favorite. He is hilarious and worth paying a monthly subscription for.
