Ronan Farrow tops annual list of highest-paid journalists
In 2012 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (September 1) that Farrow is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2013 and August 2014, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American journalist-lawyer has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Farrow Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Connecticut Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfarrow - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ronan) and a fashion line called “Ronan Farrow Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Ronan fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
