How rich is Nancy Cordes? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $2 million, mostly earned through a successful career as a journalist. She’s covered numerous high profile events over the course of her career, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Education

Nancy and her family would move to Hawaii, where she would grow up on the islands of Oahu and Kauai, respectively the third largest and oldest among the main islands, and Oahu is home to a large majority of the populace, including the state capital Honolulu. Her mother worked as a pediatrician there, and Nancy would attend Punahou School in Honolulu, from where she  matriculated. Nancy moved from home to enroll at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating as magna cum laude in 1995, then going on to Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, to complete a master’s degree in public policy.

Journalism Career

Cordes began her journalism career as a reporter for KNHL-TV located in Honolulu, serving in the station from 1995 to 1997. She then moved to the Washington, D.C. local station WJLA-TV until 2003, during which time she covered the September 11 attacks, specifically the attack which targeted the Pentagon. She also covered the 2000 Presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore, and other events she covered included the sniper attacks by two shooters in the DC area over a three-week period during October 2002, killing 10 people targeted randomly. She also covered the peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia.

In 2003, Cordes joined the affiliate news service of ABC News, NewsOne in which she worked as a Washington-based correspondent for a year, before moving to become an ABC News correspondent based in New York, from 2004 to 2007, covering the 2004 presidential election battle between George W. Bush and John Kerry. She also covered the war in Iraq, and Hurricane Katrina which was the deadly category 5 hurricane that caused extensive damage from Florida to Texas. She joined CBS News in 2007, becoming the congressional correspondent based in Washington, D.C.

Personal Life and Marriage

It is known that Nancy married Harald Cordes in 2006; very little information is known about her husband or the events that led them to meet. It is known that the couple reside in Washington, DC and they have two children together. Nancy often helps out various organizations and charities, including donating money towards helping African children’s health care.

During her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends; she swims and loves to read books by the beach. Her favorite food is avocadoes, and grew up with an abundance of them in Hawaii. She mentioned in an interview that she loves Washington D.C. too, because it has a lot of the amenities of big cities while still retaining a small-town feel.

Is Nancy Cordes on Social Media?

Similar to many personalities in the broadcast journalism industry, Cordes is very active on social media particularly on the websites Twitter and Facebook. She mainly does updates on various events regarding the government, in line with her work as a congressional correspondent. She also updates followers on some of her recent endeavors, mainly concerning her work. She also uses the online platform as a means to promote some of her personal advocacies and can also be seen re-posting important information by other well-known journalists in the US.

Her Facebook page on the other hand has pictures of her at various events around the country, however, her page has not been updated since the 2014 elections, and it seems that she has felt that Twitter was a more viable platform for news.
