14. Megyn Kelly ($16 million of estimated net worth)
Haters may say she is just a typical woman news anchor. But those people don’t know that she is also a political commentator and former corporate defense attorney. Megyn Kelly is not just all about the look. She is smart and insightful.
Being a journalist in political field can be dangerous. But Megyn stays brave, even after she had a beef with Donald Trump. During last year’s Republican Party Presidential Debate, Megyn questioned if a man with Trump’s temperament should be a president. And Trump asked her to apologize. What was her response? “I am not going to apologize for good journalism.”
Today, Megyn has her own show, The Kelly File, on FOX News Channel. She is currently being paid $15 million per year by the network, making her the 12th highest-paid TV show host. This adds to her current estimated net worth of $16 million.
The Kelly File is actually a spin-off of The O’Reilly Factor, hosted by Bill O’Reilly whom you will see later on this list. The show focuses on late-breaking stories, news analysis, and in-depth investigative reports. And it broadcasts in a live format.
