This according to a new feature on Anthony Cumia - formerly of the Opie & Anthony Show - in Streaming Media Magazine and on StreamingMedia.com. Cumia has a video and audio podcast available to subscribers through his Website, AnthonyCumia.com.
The monthly subscription for the content service is $6.95. By my own math, this means Cumia is bringing in about $278,000 per month, or roughly $3.3 million per year.
As a subscriber, you are offered discounts for locking in your subscription for six months ($32.95) or a year ($59.95).
That is not a bad living as your own boss.
There is no doubt that the workload is greater starting up his own endeavor and without the backing of a large radio conglomerate. He apparently made about $3 million per year doing his SiriusXM radio show.
The revenue he is bringing in now must also go towards paying staff, ongoing infrastructure and hosting costs, and any promotional aspects he engages in. Still, he does not leave his home and appears to be doing some innovative things with video, audio, and subscriptions in a burgeoning field. He will also use almost every part of his home for broadcasts, which is a neat touch for those watching.
Will the numbers rise as he moves ahead? Or, is this the high-water mark? Will diehard fans keep on subscribing month after month?
All things worth watching for anybody who follows the media sector.
