Good Bye Hazel Mae

NESN is a paradox. They may well be the most profitable media outlet
in the market thanks to subscriber fees and they spent a small fortune
on the Watertown complex.

However they pay the Watertown support staff peanuts as for example
master control operators get a whopping $8 an hour.

They do pay top dollar for game productions using National Mobile for
remotes and Green Line Group for crew.

Bob Kurtz who took over for Ned Martin was offered more money to do
Wild hockey on radio in Minneapolis and left.

Orsillo makes a fraction of what Sean McDonough was making. Remy
supplements his income with The Remy Report which the Red Sox link to
on their home page.
