CM – The $ 12 Million Truth About Stephen A. Smith’s ESPN Deal


Smith’s contract is worth $ 12 million a year, according to sources. As The Post previously reported, Smith’s personal salary is $ 8 million a year – which is correct – but he also has a $ 4 million a year production contract.

That makes the total compensation of the contract , which he signed in late 2019 for a five-year $ 60 million deal.

This has become relevant as Maria Taylor’s contract with ESPN expires on July 20 and she was looking for Smith-type money. </ The Post reported that ESPN was offering a $ 3 million-per-year deal. Taylor's contract expires on the day of a possible game 6 of the final that she is currently working on. She currently earns US $ 1 million a year.

Smith’s salary is not necessarily relevant to Taylor, as, in addition to his many appearances on other platforms, he has two daily shows (« First Take » on ESPN & « Stephen A’s World ») on ESPN) is mostly an omnipresent opinion maker, while Taylor Taylor is a moderator and reporter.
