Reports indicate famous sports announcer Mike Francesa makes approximately $5 million dollars per year. He signed his most recent contract in early 2013 for about $20 million through 2017.
Francesa joined WFAN as a sports announcer in 1987. Since 1989, he has served as an afternoon sports announcer and has become one of the top announcers in the country. His new contract signed in 2013 runs through 2017, and many experts in the sports industry speculate that Francesa will retire at that time, as he was already considering retirement prior to signing the renewal on his contract.
