How much Joe Rogan earns?:

Joe Rogan conservatively earned $5 million per year from the podcast in 2017. Before signing a deal with Spotify in May 2020, it was speculated that Joe Rogan was earning $20 million per year from his podcast between sponsor reads and YouTube revenue.

Joe Rogan Spotify Deal:

On May 19, 2020, it was REPORTED that Joe Rogan had signed a multi-year licensing deal with Spotify. The deal made Spotify the exclusive home of Rogan’s audio and video feeds. It also removed all of Joe’s archived episodes from YouTube and iTunes.

Terms of the deal are not disclosed. It was not an acquisition. For comparison, about a month earlier, Spotify bought Bill Simmons’ podcast network, which is significantly smaller than Rogan’s, for $190 million upfront plus $50 million per year in ongoing content costs.

Joe Rogan was mostly making $20-30 million per year before this deal. And let’s say Joe Rogan signed a three-year deal.
