The Lucrative Spotify Deal

Joe Rogan inked a multi-year deal with Spotify on May 19, 2020. The contract approved Spotify to remove all of Rogan’s past content from YouTube and include them exclusively on their platform. The deal was worth $200 million. That said, Joe Rogan was aligned to receive $67 million per year.

Last Year, Spotify banned 113 of Rogan’s podcast episodes citing insensitive language use as the reason. The deal is on the brink of ending and it’s not revealed whether Spotify would renew it. However, Rogan would continue to take big paychecks from his other activities. Several media reports also verify Rogan to be a smart investor. He has put finances into major brands like Coca Cola, Ford, Amazon and many more.

As a multi-professional, Rogan has opened several doors of financial gain and seems to be living a comfortable life.

It remains to be seen what he does with his podcasting career and where does it take him exactly.
