Big Boy’s contract: In March 2015, Big Boy signed a three-year $10.5 million contract with iHeartMedia. The contract gave  him an annual $200,000 video production budget, four weeks of vacation plus the use of a private jet for domestic travel (including Hawaii). Furthermore, iHeart agreed to spend $1 million annually on marketing costs related to the show. When word leaked out about the deal, his former employer Emmis Radio LLC, filed an injunction hoping to prevent the new contract from being signed. Emmis, which had been paying Big Boy $1.45 million per year, claimed it should have been allowed to match the offer, which they attempted to do. A judge ultimately ruled against Emmis.
