Morning Start: The cast of Friends makes around $20 million USD each year

Your morning start for Friday, May 21, 2021

Good morning and a very happy Friday! Expect a whole lot of blue skies and golden sunshine during the May long weekend.

Fun fact: The cast of Friends makes around $20 million USD each year

In light of the “Friends: The Reunion” trailer that was released earlier this week, here’s a fun fact about the beloved sitcom.

The original series aired from 1994 to 2004, spanning 10 seasons. A 2015 article published in USA Today revealed that the six main characters continued to make $20 million each year off the show, even after a decade since it ended.

“Well, through the magic of syndication revenue, Friends pulls in a whopping $1 billion each year for Warner Bros,” states the article.

That translates to about $20 million USD each for Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, who each make 2 per cent of that syndication income.

A Kelowna woman is warning others of the dangers of wildlife in the Thomson Flats trails area after a coyote attacked her dog.

On May 17, Dawn Sleiman was walking down an embankment in the area with her dog Bailey, who ran ahead into a nearby creek. Due to loose gravel, Sleiman said she kept her head down as she descended the hill.

“I heard her yelp. When I looked up, I could see her wrestling with something, then I realized it was a coyote,” said Sleiman. “That’s when I started to scream, wave my hands and charge towards them. At the same time, she was able to break away from it and she ran back to me.”
