Just how much do the talking heads at ESPN make? If you’re lucky enough to be one of the few who receives a serious push from the network and makes appearances on a variety of shows, chances are you are paid a hefty sum.
For former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, who was recently fired by the network for his inability to stop posting racially and culturally insensitive content on social media, his yearly salary at the Worldwide Leader was a whopping $2.5 million.
Schilling discussed the recent events in his career during an appearance with Dan Patrick.
Not only did Schilling reveal his salary, he accused ESPN of favoring more liberal employees and revealed he would be open to accepting a job as a political commentator. We’re guessing his goal there would have to be landing a job on FOX News.
