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.

Oh oh...I hope making that kind of money won't completely destroy Artie. I'm pretty sure he was making good money on Howard's show and see what that led to. Anyway, good luck Artie.

Don't know who Nick is. Might be a talented guy. Too bad he has to hitch his wagon to that fat load Artie. I couldn't stand him on Stern. Thought he was a poor replacement for Jackie. Howard gives him a GREAT job and he throws it away. Loser.
