Does Joe’s crew get their fair share of his massive success or is he a secret cheapskate?
During the mid-2000s, podcasting began to catch on. Despite that, it wasn’t until the last few years that the medium became a true force in the entertainment arena. Now that podcasts have become so popular, it often seems like every celebrity hosts one or has plans to in the not too distant future.
Even though so many stars have podcasts these days, there are a select few people who’ve truly become stars of the medium. Considering that The Joe Rogan Experience has millions of fans who listen to every episode, there is no doubt that the show’s host sits atop the podcast world.
While Joe Rogan is the star of his podcast, several other people play a key role in the show’s production. With that in mind, it begs an obvious question, how much does Rogan pay the people who help make his podcast a reality?
When The Joe Rogan Experience debuted in 2009, there was no way to know that the podcast would become such a huge hit. Originally created as an excuse for Rogan, his original producer Brian Redban, and their guests to joke around and have fun, it took a while for the podcast to improve.
Now known for his unique interview style, Joe Rogan has proven time and time again that he can get his guests to open up and reveal things they typically keep close to the chest. Once Joe Rogan mastered his interviewing skills, the podcast seemed to become a huge deal practically overnight.
In the years since The Joe Rogan Experience was launched, it has become so popular that its host became a thought leader for his devoted audience. Of course, anyone who has listened to The JRE would know that Rogan likely would bristle at such a label. Still, Rogan hasn’t been shy about cashing in on all of his success as he is very open about the deal he struck with Spotify that was worth more than $100 million.
In addition to the massive amount of money that Joe Rogan has made from his podcast, he has amassed his fortune in several other ways over the years. Currently best known as a UFC broadcaster, Rogan has also made money as a comedian, as one of the stars of the sitcom NewRadio, and as the host of Fear Factor.
At the end of the day, there is one member of The Joe Rogan Experience staff who could never be replaced, the show’s titular host. As a result, it makes all the sense in the world that he would take home the vast majority of the money that the podcast brings in. That said, considering how successful The JRE has become, it also seems reasonable to assume the show’s key staff members are doing quite well financially.
As of the time of this writing, none of The Joe Rogan Experience’s staff members has publicly stated how much money they make from the show. That said, there are reports about how much Rogan’s right-hand man in terms of the podcast, producer Jamie Vernon, gets paid for his role.
Based on how much money The Joe Rogan Experience has brought in over the years, fans of the podcast have estimated that producer Jamie Vernon makes $125,000 to $150,000 annually. However, based on their interpretation of the numbers, the people at celebnewsupdates.com estimate his salary to be closer to $200,000 a year. While there is no way to know for sure how accurate those numbers are at this time, it seems very clear that Vernon makes a tidy sum. Of course, those figures are to say nothing about the fringe benefits Vernon’s JRE role affords him. For example, Vernon gets to meet all manner of celebrities and if he wants to attend a UFC event, he has a really good hook up.
