not very good. for a small city ( around 100K), I would guess about $28K-$40K depending on how long the person has been there.

I'm going to say "not a lot, but variable with Q".

Q being the number of people who will tune in to a show just because that person is on it.

I'm guessing other than "being hired on chest size" the Q factor generally takes some aggression - going to management and threatening to walk unless they pay more?

I was thinking more along the lines of local reputation. How much you can convince the audience that you're better than the other guy. There are ads for the local weather guy, including "man on the street" testimonials, fancy computer graphics, and the weatherman in question looking uber confident.

If the weatherman had large knockers... Well, he'd be Al Roker.
