Alycia Lane Reveals Fat Salary in Legal Battle

Amid the tawdry details of Alycia Lane‘s tryst with Larry Mendte brought to light in their current legal battle is one detail that is especially jaw-dropping: Lane’s salary.

According to court documents, reviewed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lane told Mendte’s lawyer that she made $780,000 in 2007, while working as a marquee anchor for Philadelphia’s KYW.

“How much money were you making in 2007?” Mendte’s lawyer asked Lane during her deposition. “2007, I was making $780,000.”

The figure is especially significant since Lane’s rising salary has been mentioned as a motivation for Mendte hacking into her e-mail account between 2006 and 2008. At the time, Mendte was making roughly $700,000 a year.
