Denis Brogniart tops annual list of highest-paid journalists

In 2018 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (November 23) that Brogniart is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $20 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 French journalist has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Brogniart Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Dijon Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbrogniart - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Denis) and a fashion line called “Denis Brogniart Seduction”.

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