NHL play by play commentators salary
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
It ranges from $40,000/yr (Fox SportsNet standard NHL play by play salary) to $700,000/yr (Jim Hughson/HNIC).,
The current average for an NHL TV play-by-play guy is $81,000 (Remember............that means a total of $2.43MM...........of which Hughson makes 0.70MM of that - and I'm sure Bob Cole makes a sizeable amount of money too)
The current average salary for an NHL radio play-by-play guy is $36,000.
These numbers were divulged in a Toronto newspaper a year or so ago when a local Toronto kid who works with ESPN (Dan Shulman) became Canada's highest paid sportscaster.
