A Step Down for Russo?

By the way, isn't Russo simply appearing on Daily News Live an obvious step down? WFAN's Mike and the Mad Dog Chris Russo wouldn't be seen dead on that show. Now, he's yukking it up on there? I guess when you have 15 million dollars padding your fanny, those SNY chairs feel a lot better. Also does Russo realize that he was just on a show that was the LEAD IN to a show with Chris Carlin? WOW

But i am off track: Russo was asked what was the moment where he knew that he had to leave WFAN and he said that Mel Karmazin told him that he could be "Producer, Actor, Writer, Director," and that was an opportunity he couldn't pass up.

I guess the way to a man's heart is right through his ego. Russo, the Woody Allen of Sirius.

It was definitely the double salary just as much so as the ego.

I can't blame him

Russo will be everywhere, just like Stern was. Free promotion. He'll work harder now than when the show starts. In a few months, he'll have to pay to advertise like everyone else.
