Josh Sapan hauled in $29.6 million in 2017, which, remarkably, is a pay cut.
The AMC Networks president and chief executive officer made about $900,000 less than he did in 2016, when Sapan’s all-in take was $30.5 million.
Sapan’s 2017 salary stayed consistent with the prior years at $2 million. His stock award of $14.3 million was up from 2016, though a sizable decline in the “non-equity incentive plan compensation” more than offset the growth.
The AMC boss’s loss under catch-all heading “all other compensation” was immaterial when talking about these sums of money.
It’s good to have “The Walking Dead” — even this version.
