I’ve learned a bit more about Fox News lead news anchor Shepard Smith’s new multi-year deal with the cable channel. Despite reports that it runs through 2013, I hear that it actually kicks in next year when his current pact expires and runs through 2014. And Smith is getting a salary bump over the $7 million – $8 million a year his current contract stipulates. He is already being put to extra work to earn the big new check: Smith will be hosting an Election night special on sister broadcast network Fox next Tuesday when he also will be interviewing Sarah Palin.
UPDATE: Shepard Smith At Fox News Through 2014
