Arsenio Hall tops annual list of highest-paid television hosts
In 2016 it looked like the television host’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (May 20) that Hall is the highest-paid television host in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2018 and April 2019, a nearly $30 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 television host-actor-comedian has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Hall Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Cleveland Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderhall - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Arsenio) and a fashion line called “Arsenio Hall Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Arsenio fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
