Katie Couric may be saying goodbye to the big bucks of network news as she leaves ABC for good, but don't feel bad for her just yet!

Katie's new job as a Global Anchor for Yahoo! News will fetch her a pretty penny! Actually, 600,000,000 of them!

According to insiders, Katie's new contract will get her SIX MILLION dollars a year for what is essentially a part-time job!

Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us!

Of course, it's still a hefty pay cut from the reported $15 mil she was making while anchoring the CBS Evening News, but hey, times are tough all over!

Matt Lauer's Salary May Cost Jobs!

Matt Lauer Salary May Cost Jobs

Matt Lauer's role on the Today show may be getting reduced, but his pay sure isn't!

In fact, an NBC insider says the morning host won't even take a salary cut if it means saving jobs! The source says:

"TODAY show staffers are convinced there will be significant job losses because of the cost-cutting measures that are being done across the board by Comcast, which now owns a majority stake in NBC. The crew believes that some of the potential cuts could be avoided if Matt agreed to a pay cut."

Can just one man's salary really make a difference? How much can the morning show host make anyway? The insider says:

"Matt's salary is a whopping $30 million dollars a year, and it’s seriously crippling the show. But he has made it pretty clear that he won’t take a pay decrease, so instead the staffers are in line for the chop."

WHAT million dollars?? 30 WHAT dollars?? 30 million WHAT??

If he really makes that much and won't take a pay cut to save jobs, we don't know what to do! Except maybe hope he gets visited by three ghosts this Christmas! LOLz!

NBC Confirms Jay Leno Took $15 Million Pay Cut To Save Tonight Show Jobs

Filed under: TV NewsHoward SternJay Leno

This probably won't make Howard Stern stop trashing him on the radio, but NBC has confirmed that Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a 50% pay cut to protect his staff from inevitable layoffs.

Between 20 and 25 employees lost their jobs at the late-night talk show last month, but the bloodbath could have been a lot worse because Leno gave up $15 million for the people working behind the scenes!

That's pretty admirable if you ask us considering

But why??? It's not like their ratings suck over there!!

Still, an NBC insider says:

Has Harry Shearer Hurt Simpsons Negotiations By Going Rogue???

Filed under: TV NewsOops!Business Blitz

harry shearer may have messed up simpsons negotiations

We LOVED what he had to say…but we suppose we can understand how this could cause dramz with the rest of the Simpsons cast.

A bit earlier today, Simpsons voice actor Harry Shearer released a lengthy statement, in which he said he'd be willing to take a 70% pay cut for Fox to keep The Simpsons on the air. In return, Harry said he'd like a small amount of profit participation in the show.

Now, we're hearing
