What Is Alex Jones’ Net Worth and Salary?

Alex Jones is an American conspiracy theorist and far-right political fanatic with a $900 million negative net worth. As the host of “The Alex Jones Program,” a radio talk show that he produces out of Austin, Texas, and streams from his website Infowars, Alex Jones rose to national prominence. Through his website, he has sold things worth hundreds of millions of dollars and authored books. His offerings include anything from “brain medicines” to diet supplements to outdoor gear.

At his defamation trial in August 2022, Jones said that his net worth was little more than $5 million. A financial forensic expert at the same trial determined that Jones and his businesses were valued between $135 million and $270 million. It was established throughout this trial that the yearly gross income for Jones’ principal business, Infowars, between 2015 and 2022, averaged $53.2 million. At this trial, a jury awarded Alex $49 million to compensate his victims.

A jury in Connecticut sentenced Jones to pay $965 million in defamation damages to a group of Sandy Hook massacre victims in October 2022. A Connecticut judge increased the damages estimate one month later to $1.3 billion. His total judgment after a third trial was $1.5 billion.

After Sandy Hook, Jones continued to spread untruths about the incident, including the claim that it was staged as part of a government scheme to restrict Americans’ access to firearms. Jones allegedly utilized such claims to attract traffic to his website and the sales of his products, according to the Connecticut jury. Additionally, the jury ruled that Alex must pay the plaintiff’s legal expenses.

Radio Career

He started his career in Austin working on a public access TV program with live call-ins before switching to radio in 1996 and anchoring a program on KJFK called “The Final Edition.” While he was a candidate for Congress, Ron Paul appeared on his show frequently. He and Shannon Burke shared first place in the Austin Chronicle readers’ poll for “Best Austin Talk Show Host” in 1999.

Later that year, because to his refusal to extend his themes and the fact that his opinions made it impossible for the station to sell advertisements, he was let go from KJFK. Then Jones started hosting his program from his house and streaming it online.

Jones ran as a Republican for Texas House District 48 State Representative in 2000. He stated that he was participating in the race to “be a watchdog from the inside,” but he later dropped out. Jones’ radio program was syndicated on around 100 stations in 2001. Following the 9/11 attacks, Jones started promoting the inside job hypothesis, which claimed that the Bush government was responsible for the assault.

After he emerged as the spokesperson for the 9/11 “truther” movement, some stations dropped him. The Genesis Communications Network syndicates “The Alex Jones Show” nationwide to more than 100 AM and FM stations in the United States. It drew almost 2 million listeners per week in 2010.

Personal Life

From 2007 through 2015, Alex and Kelly Jones were wed. They are parents of three kids. Due to her ex-odd husband’s conduct, Kelly Jones requested sole custody of their children in 2017. She said that he was unstable and worried about their children’s safety. His counsel attempted to justify his actions by claiming that he was “playing a character” similar to a “performance artist.” Jones has consistently denied having a role in his program. Jones still has visiting rights despite Kelly being given exclusive custody.

Jones was detained and accused of drunk driving in Texas in March 2020. His DWI accusation, a class B misdemeanor, was verified by the Travis County prison in Austin. He was taken into custody but freed on a “personal recognizance bail” four hours later.
