One of the best ways to make a lot of money is to build up a following. Whether it is as a celebrity, sports star, or notable personality, companies will pay a great deal of money to have you representing them and bringing in additional fans. With that in mind lets take a moment to look at the life and salary of Ryan Russillo. Making a career from being a sports host and radio personality, Ryan Russillo defines a successful carrier built around charisma charm, and skill.
Life, Career, And Earning Potential
Born on August 5, 1975, Ryan Russillo began his career as a sports announcer in college. A 1997 graduate of the University of Vermont, Ryan Russillo worked for several years covering his college teams and mastering the art of quickly and effectively relating what teams were doing. Going from this to sports news radio, Ryan Russillo continued to expand his career, eventually hosting NBA Sunday, The Baseball Show, and ESPN Radio College Gameday on ESPN. With all of his dedication and work Ryan Russillo was named the best radio voice in 2007. Every year with ESPN, Ryan Russillo’s earning potential continues to grow.
Ryan Russillo’s exact salary is unknown, as it is worked out privately between ESPN and Ryan Russillo. However, from reports and posts made on the subject, Ryan Russillo was provided a multi-year contract over several years to continue the SVP & Russillo simulcast on ESPNews. Looking at similar radio hosts from ESPN, the potential salary for Ryan Russillo may be in the low to mid six-figure range. Given that he has a multi-year contract, his earnings will be locked in place until the contract is revisited at a later date. By then, if he is still in good standing with ESPN, then Ryan Russillo will make even more.
Future Earning Potential
At only 39 years of age, Ryan Russillo has a great deal of earning potential ahead of him. Having not even gotten close to the peak age for sports announcers (which can go as high as people wanting to do it,) Ryan Russillo has some time to build up a solid following as well as name recognition. As long as he remains active in sports and continues to work, there is little chance that he will be forgotten about. As a result, he has years to become one of the most recognizable names in sports in the years to come.
