In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American producer has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Ebersol Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Torrington Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderebersol - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Charlie) and a fashion line called “Charlie Ebersol Seduction”.
