Stephen A Smith Will Reportedly Make $8 Million Annually With New ESPN Deal

via ESPN

Let this be a lesson to anybody currently in journalism school.

If you work hard enough, and deliver enough hot takes, you can one day become the highest paid ESPN personality. That’s the deal for Stephen A Smith, who is reportedly getting a new contract worth a ton of money, according the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand:

Stephen A. Smith’s new five-year contract will make him ESPN’s highest-paid sportscaster with an annual salary that will approach $8 million per year, according to sources.

This will move Smith past Mike Greenberg’s $6.5 million, which was ESPN’s previous known highest salary. Greenberg is the host of “Get Up!”

I’m surprised that Greenberg makes that much money, but I guess it makes sense since he anchors the big morning show up there in New York.

I’ve been on record saying that Stephen A Smith is a national treasure, and while he does, of course, just say some shit for the sake of saying shit, you won’t find a harder worker out there. He’s all over the place, doing First Take, traveling for NBA games, plus some boxing and radio and whatnot.

Anyway, Marchand says Smith will be giving up that national radio show, but will continue to do First Take, SportsCenter, and work the network’s basketball coverage.

  1. And Stevie will continue to scream how tough he and his Homies have it in our country….but we don’t see any long lines at the airport to leave.

      1. Why would I leave the greatest country in the world, and I’m not complaining I’m stating a fact. By the way, would you tell Stevie to go back to Africa or would that upset your “Woke” agenda?

        1. You seem to have issues with everyone that doesn’t repeat all conservative talking points. How can this be the greatest county in the world if you dislike a large portion of the population?

          Maybe Russia is your destination.

          1. Hey General Numb Nuts… I never said I “dislike a large portion of the population”, don’t put words in my mouth.

  2. Congratulations Steven A, you’ve earned every dollar.

  3. Who owns ESPN? Oh thats right Disney owns ESPN. Disney also owns ABC. And you folks still happily take your children to Disneyland & World that openly protect those that harm your kiddo’s. but but but pizza gate was just a conspiracy! You fools are beginning to wake up aren’t you?

      1. Disney Cruises went to Epstein Island, Epstein is a P3do, Disney has multiple p3do cases against them, disney owns ABC, ABC covers up Epstein story says:

        I’m more than fine. Epstein Island, Clinton, ABC covering up, Disney sending cruises to Epstein Island, go back to sleep and watch your “sports entertainment”

    1. It amazes me the amount of people that run to Disneyland, like it’s some sort of have-to-do-if-you’re American. Overpriced garbage and marketing. Not once in my life have I wanted to go, even as a kid.
