Patrick McGeehan of The New York Times reported that several Air America radio talkers didn't get all their pay before the network went belly-up -- including Rachel Maddow, who wasn't even producing a show any more (just a simulcast of her MSNBC hour):
But when the lefty chatter stopped, some of the talkers had not been paid for the last of the airtime they filled. Ms. Maddow was due $3,952 for her services, which appeared to be about two-thirds of her monthly pay of $5,833. Mr. Reagan’s company was owed $6,351, two-thirds of his monthly pay of $9,375.
Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer wrote it was a nice check if you could snag it:
[T]he MSNBC talker was paid $70,000 per annum for a one-hour audio-only rerun of the previous night's cable program. Segments were cut up to fit network radio's format and a few brief pre-recorded introductions were added using Maddow's voice.
