BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut judge has ordered CBS
sportscaster Jim Nantz to pay his ex-wife $916,000 a year in alimony and child support.
Monday's ruling comes after Nantz and his ex-wife, Lorrie, testified about the breakdown of their 26-year marriage. Bridgeport Superior Court Judge Howard Owens concluded neither was at fault.
Nantz must pay $72,000 monthly in alimony until he dies or his ex-wife remarries, and another $1,000 weekly in child support for their 15-year-old daughter, Caroline, for the next two years. Lorrie Nantz will get their six-bedroom home in Westport.
Court documents cited Jim Nantz's $3.2 million salary from CBS and other yearly assets.
Nantz's attorney says Nantz will not appeal the decision.
