Artie Lange & Nick DiPaolo

BALLIN' with $3 MILLION Deal!!

9/28/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927_artie_lange_nick_dipaolo_EXDArtie Lange's return to radio is paying off for him and partner Nick DiPaolo ... BIG time -- because TMZ has learned the comedy duo will rake in a total of about 3 MILLION bucks!

We're told Artie and Nick just inked 3-year deals for a nationally syndicated radio show premiering Monday, October 3. Sources involved in the deal say each of them will make more than 500K per year of the deal -- and it's going to be called "The Nick and Artie Show."

As TMZ first reported ... DirecTV put together the deal to get Nick and the former "Howard Stern Show" star. We're told there are already plans to simulcast Nick and Artie on The Audience Network next Spring.

The show will focus on sports and entertainment -- and we're told Artie's already describing it like this: "Imagine two hosts from SportsCenter ... if they were under indictment."

As they say ... check your local listings.

Good to hear, I love Nick DiPaolo. I'll never forget him telling Pamela Anderson that when watching Baywatch he jer*ed off so often he had to employ a homeless guy to stand next to his TV with a squeegee

Artie Lange is the friendly, jovial cousin we all wish we had. I am very happy for him. I hope that he will appear on Howard's show once in a while to cross promote each other's show.

Artie is a fat, drug addict drunk, disgusting, ugly, not funny, waste of a human. Why give this no talent schmuck work? I always wondered what Howard Stern saw in him?
