Post Publisher Katharine Weymouth Made $1.9 Million in 2011
Post publisher Katharine Weymouth made over $1.9 million dollars in 2011, according to SEC filings made Friday, as well as receiving a nearly 13 percent raise in her base salary.
Weymouth made $1,927,798 in total from working at the Washington Post Co. in 2011, according to the filing. She received $606,250 in salary, $256,548 in bonus, and $1,065,000 from the “WP Media Three-Year Long-Term Incentive Plan.”
Weymouth’s 2012 base salary has been raised nearly $19,000 from 2011, to $625,000, about a 3.1 percent increase. In 2011, Weymouth’s salary rose from $537,000 to $606,250, a nearly 13 percent increase.
Weymouth’s total compensation from 2011 is lower than what she received in 2010, when she made over $2 million. While the amount Weymouth made in her base salary and WP Media incentive plan rose in 2011, her bonus was $200,000 lower in 2011.
When Weymouth’s compensation was revealed last year, Post staffers criticized her on Twitter, and the Post Guild demanded pay increases like Weymouth’s.
