Report: Stephen A. Smith strikes massive new deal with ESPN
 

 
Stephen A. Smith has branded himself as one of the most recognizable personalities on ESPN, if not all of the sports media world.

Now, he’s going to be paid like it.

Smith and ESPN have reached an agreement after months of negotiations on a five-year deal worth nearly $8 million per year to keep him at the network, according to the New York Post. He is now set to be ESPN’s highest-paid on-air personality.

The 51-year-old has been with the network since 2005, making waves with his involvement on “First Take,” “The Stephen A. Smith Show,” ESPN’s NBA coverage and more. According to the Post, Smith will remain on “First Take” each morning and expand his role on “SportsCenter” — including hosting a special Wednesday night edition ahead of their NBA slate that night throughout the season. His radio show, however, is reportedly set to end next year.

ESPN, per the report, is also exploring ways to involve Smith with its subscription service “ESPN+.”

Smith’s new deal surpasses that of Mike Greenberg’s, who was the previous highest-paid ESPN sportscaster. The “Get Up!” host reportedly earns $6.5 million per year. “PTI” hosts Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser are “believed to be in Greenberg’s neighborhood,” too.

He's pretty much the face of the network now. He definitely deserves it. Dude has been working like crazy. ESPN did a lot of lay offs over the last couple of years and some of the people they kept ended up making more money, but having to be on more shows.

Jalen Rose was getting big bread at one point as well (as I understood it). I don't know his current contract situation though.

Exactly obesegang doesn't even claim his sellout to fat to tapdance a*s but he was bragging about living in some expensive place in downtown LA with a doorman so he must have money coming in from other stuff or he saved his old money from other networks or he is just a big fat liar who wants people to not rob him or to feel bad for him only making 1% of what SAS makes or that is the only money left after his grocery bills are paid.

He deserves more. Dude is on every show 24/7. You have people making 5-6 million on ESPN that only do one or two shows....

Sounds like he's just working more hours not necessarily getting paid more.
