Amr Adib has just been dubbed the highest paid tv host by chairman of Saudi’s General Sports Authority, Turky El El Sheikh, reports Fil Fan. The title comes after Egyptian media personality signed a two year contract which sees him hosting a new show on MBC. The deal was sealed in the presence of Saudi host, Betal Al Qous and El Sheikh who likened Adib to the Larry King of the Arab world.
