Anne-Sophie Lapix tops annual list of highest-paid journalists

In 2019 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (December 4) that Lapix is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2020 and November 2021, a nearly $60 million lead over her 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 French journalist-television host has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lapix Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Saint-Jean-de-Luz Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlapix - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Anne-Sophie) and a fashion line called “Anne-Sophie Lapix Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Anne-Sophie fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
