CNN hosts CNN host Jim Acosta has been paid $3 million for a new project, but other journalists have received more money, too.
The news organization says the new $3.3 million deal is a three-year, $3,000-per-episode deal.
Acosta’s contract with CNN ends at the end of 2019.
CNN says it’s also working on a new venture that will include more than 1,000 jobs.
Acuston has been a regular guest on CNN’s “New Day” since 2009.
Acosto has said in the past he’s happy to be paid more, but CNN says Acosta was paid about $2.4 million for the same role in 2015.
The company also says Acostos salary has increased “significantly” from $2 million in 2016 to about $3M this year.
Acosson, who is also a former White House correspondent, has said he would love to continue on CNN for the next 10 years.
Aconte is one of three current CNN reporters who were paid more than $1 million each.
The other two are Jake Tapper, who was paid $1.6 million last year, and Eric Lichtblau, who got $1M in 2017.
CNN also announced a $100 million investment in Acosta and other journalists.
Acountos salary is a departure from CNN’s past practice of paying reporters based on the number of hours they report for the network.
CNN reported in January that its journalists are receiving salaries based on a number of factors, including a person’s work experience, the length of time they’ve been on the air and whether they’re on a daily or a weekly basis.
CNN said that the new contracts are “not meant to be a replacement for the CNN team,” but that it will provide a “steady stream of highly-competitive pay.”
