The Net Worth of Connie Chung
How rich is Connie Chung? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $30 million, mostly earned through a successful career in broadcast journalism. She has participated in numerous high profile events and interviews throughout her career, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Connie is the youngest of five children, born less than a year after her family moved to Washington D.C. from China; her father previously worked as an intelligence officer for the Chinese Nationalist Government. She was educated at Montgomery Blair High School, and after matriculating attended the University of Maryland, where she would study journalism, graduating in 1969, and then pursuing a career relating to her degree.
Chung started working as a Washington-based correspondent for “CBS Evening News”, initially mainly giving updates regarding the Watergate political scandal. She later left the network to work as an anchor for KNXT’s evening newscasts, operating in Los Angeles, and subsequently also anchored the network’s primetime news updates. In 1983, she signed with NBC as an anchor of their early program entitled “NBC News at Sunrise”, but also became the anchor of the Saturday edition of “NBC Nightly News”, plus serving as a fill-in reporter when required.
In 1995, Connie had a controversial interview with Kathleen Gingrich, the mother of politician Newt Gingrich; during the interview, Kathleen mentioned that she didn’t want to state on air what her son thought of First Lady Hillary Clinton, which prompted Connie to ask her to just whisper it to her, never really implying that the statement would be off the air. She received a lot of criticism by suggesting that the statement would be ‘off the record’ but the interview made Connie famous – or infamous – in journalistic circles.
A few months later, she was again criticized for sarcasm – during an interview with the Oklahoma City Fire Department spokesman, she expressed her doubts on the capability of the Fire Department during the Oklahoma City bombing. Thousands of viewers wrote in protest, demanding that Chung either resign from CBS or move to a weekend slot – she chose to resign, and moved to the ABC.
During her time with ABC, her interviews included one with Gary Condit after the murder of Washington D.C. intern Chandra Levy. She was also a guest host of the morning program “Good Morning America”, but declined to take a permanent role after being offered one.
It is known that Connie is married to talk show host Maury Povich and they have an adopted son. She attends a synagogue with her family, but has not converted to Judaism. According to her husband, she has become more devoted to the faith in recent years and the couple maintain a kosher lifestyle. The two tried unsuccessfully to have children, leading them to adopt. Aside from her journalism work, Connie has accepted a teaching fellowship at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
