Who is Eric Chemi?
Born on an unspecified date in an unidentified part of USA, Eric Chemi is a Caucasian business researcher and reporter. He is perhaps best known to the world for his various sports business reports during his time at CNBC, though a significant part of his fame comes from being the husband of Kelly Evans, who is the co-host of CNBC business news channel’s “Closing Bell”. He has also had a number of other successes over the course of his sometimes lucrative reporting career since 2014.
Early Life and Education: A Mystery
Eric was raised apparently an only child in his birthplace by parents of still unknown names and professions. His earliest interests are, like the majority of his pre-professional life, unknown to the public. As for his education, he attended a local high school, from where he matriculated, then enrolled into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to further his studies, and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science.
Unlike many who have a highly developed career in reporting, Eric didn’t start with this type of job immediately upon graduation. He initially pursued business-related positions across companies which were centered on various aspects of monetary fluctuation, such as Fortress Investment Group, which was his first post-graduation job, specifically in their hedge fund management. He also worked for JPMorgan’s proprietary trading desk for an unspecified amount of time. Later on, he became employed at Bloomberg TV and Businessweek, where he headed data research, where he remained until December 2014, when he joined CNBC as a senior editor-at-large, at which time he was in charge of preparing various stories that heavily focused on data from nearly every industry branch. Ever since, he has managed to gain an enviable amount of recognition for his professional achievements, having covered various interesting sports topics, such as the struggle for legality of different minor sports in 2015, the purchasing of Olympic athletes by small countries in 2016, the kneeling of NFL players over the duration of the national anthem in 2017, and the freshly legitimate sports gambling enterprise in 2018. This is also the position he maintains today.
Love Life: Married to Kelly Evans
As for his romantic involvements, there isn’t much information across authoritative sources regarding Eric’s relationships prior to his current one. Eric Chemi and CNBC’s “Closing Bell” co-host Kelly Evans are believed to have dated for at least a couple of years, prior to exchanging their wedding vows on the 22nd of April 2017. They initially did not plan on publicizing their union, but Kelly’s colleague let slip the news of their wedding during a live broadcast of “Closing Bell”. Together, they have a son of an unknown name, who was born on the 5th of July 2018. The two reside together at an undisclosed location with their child – there hasn’t been any controversy surrounding their marriage.
Who is Kelly Evans?
Born under the sign of Gemini on the 17th of June 1985 in Hartford, Connecticut USA, Kelly Evans is a 33-year-old Caucasian television host and reporter. She is definitely best known to the world for her significant presence on the TV screen as the co-host of CNBC’s business television program entitled “Closing Bell”. She has also had a number of other successes over the course of her sometimes lucrative reporting career since 2007. As for her education, she attended Rockbridge County High School in Lexington, Virginia USA, where she was also raised. She later graduated magna cum laude from Washington and Lee University, and was also a George Washington Honor Scholar.

What is Eric Chemi’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Eric Chemi is, as of early 2019? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total of Eric’s accumulated wealth is close to $3 million, while his annual earnings are thought to range up to $110,000; his wife Kelly Evans is also believed to have nearly $3 million in net worth.

However, it doesn’t appear as though Eric is at all preoccupied with maintaining his involvement in this trend, seeing as his presence on social networks is all but ubiquitous at the moment. He doesn’t have accounts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
