Annie Lemoine tops annual list of highest-paid journalists

In 2018 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (August 10) that Lemoine is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between July 2019 and July 2020, 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 Lemoine Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Torigni-sur-Vire Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlemoine - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Annie) and a fashion line called “Annie Lemoine Seduction”.

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