The longtime CBS Sports announcer's contract paying him $6.5 million a year is up next summer. The New York Post's Andrew Marchand reports Nantz wants his salary to top Romo's new salary that pays him $17.5 million a year. While Romo only works the football season, Nantz calls the NFL, the Final Four and golf, including The Masters. “In the last 30 years, Jim Nantz has become the face and voice of CBS Sports,” said Nantz's agent. Marchand also reports that one of the reasons why Romo was paid roughly $1 million to not work last week while Nantz called The Masters was because "Nantz is protective of his relationship with Romo." On Fox, when lead broadcaster Joe Buck calls the World Series, his NFL partner Troy Aikman is paired with another play-by-play broadcaster. But Nantz apparently doesn't want Romo to develop chemistry with somebody else.
