Claire Chazal 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 Thursday (September 16) that Chazal is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between August 2020 and August 2021, a nearly $40 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 $215 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 Chazal Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Thiers Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderchazal - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Claire) and a fashion line called “Claire Chazal Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Claire fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
