He shares the spot with Simon Cowell, each of whom made $95 million last year. According to Forbes, “Stern makes most of his money from his contract with Sirius XM, but he gets an estimated $15 million per year from his work as a judge on the talent show [America’s Got Talent]. Stern’s contract with Sirius XM is up in 2015, but the company’s CFO says he expects Sirius XM and Stern will be able to hammer out a new agreement.” Meanwhile, Glenn Beck ranks number three with $90 million in income. Forbes says, “Though it may seem like the right-wing talk show host has faded from the scene, he’s actually been as busy as ever at his online site, The Blaze. Beck is the poster boy for taking a TV brand online and making a mint. His loyal fans pay $10 per month to access his video content online.”
