According to Page2Live Freedom Broadcasting president and West Palm Beach resident, Doreen Wade, got $150,000 bonus this year on top of her $300,000 salary and also billed the company for expenses as low as $12! Freedom’s executive vice president received slightly over $30,000 bonus on top of his $300,000 salary. HeatCity.org says in all Freedom’s suits awarded themselves $2.6 million in bonuses this year.
This at a time when Freedom Broadcasting is bankrupt and sitting on over $1billion in debt. In addition WPEC saw over 30 people laid off in April 2009 and then instituted salary cuts. WPEC anchors had their salaries reduced by 5% in July 2009 as part of cost reductions at Freedom.
