Building Wealth as a Journalist
How rich is Melissa Lee? As of early-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $5 million, mostly earned through a successful career in broadcast journalism. She’s also hosted several documentaries for CNBC, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Life Before CNBC
After completing her studies, she would start working as a consultant for Mercer Management Consulting, focusing on banking and credit card affairs before later finding work in the news and financial sector, with both CNN Financial News and Bloomberg Television. She eventually decided to leave when she found a position with CNBC in 2004.

Lee would eventually take over as the host of the daily show CNBC program “Fast Money” in 2009, when former co-host Dylan Ratigan left CNBC to join companion network MSNBC. The show tackles financial stock trading, and begins one hour after the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). She also became the temporary host of “Closing Bell” when the anchor is unavailable, which is named after the bell that is rung to signify the end of the trading session on the NYSE. The show also has a European version which tackles the European markets after the closing bell as well. Aside from these, she hosted “Options Action” and “Money in Motion: Currency Trading”, and thanks to her work, she would be nominated for two Emmy Award for Business News, and won a Gracie Award for Outstanding Host-News.
Aside from her financial show work, Melissa has also worked on a total of five CNBC documentaries, including “Code Wars: America’s Cyber Threat”, “The $50M Con”, “Porn: Business of Pleasure”, “Made in China: The People’s Republic of Profit”, and “Coca-Cola: The Real Story Behind the Real Thing”. In 2015, she was assigned as one of the four hosts of the show “Power Lunch”, which examines trends, people and businesses which influence Wall Street, and has real-time market coverage starting from the mid-point of the US trading day.

Is Melissa Lee Married?
While there are many speculations on Melissa’s romantic relationships or her civil status, there has not been any information released about any former or current relationships, so it’s not known whether she is married or engaged. Many speculate that it is likely that she wants to keep this aspect of her life private, or possibly information later on as female broadcast journalists tend to go on maternity leave during their career, signifying a relationship or marriage. Meantime, she still resides in New York City.
On Social Media – Twitter
As with numerous other broadcast journalists and many financial news personalities, Melissa can be found on Twitter, on which she promotes her recent shows “Fast Money”, “Power Lunch”, and “Options Action”, and also posts articles that could possibly influence the markets. Some of her recent tweets are about big news that affected the stocks of Facebook and Ironwood Pharmaceuticals. It seems that she is only active on Twitter and does not have any accounts on other big social media websites such as Instagram or Facebook.
She also has a presence on the video streaming website YouTube, on which there are many posts regarding her reports made by numerous financial-based YouTube accounts, and some fans of her work. CNBC also posts official videos of her work, documentaries and promotions which often feature her.
