TV Broadcaster Contract Notes


I've been reading some fan posts about what the contracts of the color and play by play guys with the Orioles and Television.  This has been an issue that was raised in light of the Baltimore Sun article on Flanny this past weekend.   Thorne is the only broadcaster who inked a long term contract for 5 years.  That was signed 2 seasons ago.  I know this because I have really close sources over there at warehouse.   Also Jim Hunter is so jealous of him that he blew a gasket when he found out.   Practically every other on air talent with MASN works on 1 year contracts.   Last season Brady Anderson and the other guests on the broadcasts were paid for each day they worked which was usually 8 to 10 days total.  Fred and Joe contracts are also attached to the Orioles and not the radio station which they broadcast on.  Some of the on-air talent only get paid by freelance rate which means they paid a certain rate per day of work.
