If you appear on Regis & Kathy Lee (or whatever), you receive $850 but they don't pay for your airfare and they don't pay for hotel. (At least this is what tech guru Leo Laporte said.)
The never funny Hal Jay of WBAP actually was funny when he said, "Do you know what won the Grammy in the category of Best Children's Spoken Word? (pause) 'Here's Your Puppy,' by Weird Uncle Harold." (insert awkward silence). Shocking for WBAP, but funny.
