Today it was reported that:
An analysis by The Associated Press shows that New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson got roughly $4.9 million in compensation in 2009.
Robinson's base salary fell 4 percent to $962,500. But she got a bonus of about $2.3 million, four times the size of her 2008 bonus.
That’s not counting stock options. Of course stock options would not amount to much. The current price of New York Times stock is less than $12 - with a 52 week low of $4.05.
At $4.05 per share, the stock is worth less than the newsstand price of the Sunday edition, which is $5.00.
Janet Robinson’s compensation is pretty hefty for a financially floundering newspaper.
