Carole Radziwill tops annual list of highest-paid journalists
In 2015 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (April 24) that Radziwill is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between March 2017 and March 2018, 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 American 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 Radziwill Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Suffern Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderadziwill - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Carole) and a fashion line called “Carole Radziwill Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Carole fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
