Non-Profit Radio Exec Makes A Lotta Loot

The state of Minnesota has a population of about 5.2 million people. Its public radio network is called Minnesota Public Radio (or "MPR"). MPR operates 30 public radio stations in the state (which is a ratio of about one station for every 150,000 residents). There is a state law that requires non-profit groups (who take state funding) disclose every employee whose annual salary exceeds $100,000. Sounds like a reasonable law, huh?

Well, MPR has said it will refuse any state funding if it has to comply with the law. And btw, it has been learned the president of MPR, a person named William Kling, gets an annual salary of $500,000. Like I always say..."that is pretty good work if you can get it".
