The Wealth of Paula Zahn
How rich is Paula Zahn? As of early-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $12 million, mostly earned from a successful career in broadcast journalism. She’s handled numerous projects during the course of her career, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
After matriculating, Paula attended Stephens College located in Columbia, Missouri, a part of which was undertaken on a cello scholarship, and she then took an internship as a part of WBBM-TV, which also started her exposure in news. She graduated in 1978 with a degree in journalism, and after completing her studies, she would work at various local stations for the next 10 years, which included WFAA-TV, KPRC-TV, WHDH-TV and KCBS-TV. In 1987, she then got an opportunity to start working for ABC News, for which she became the anchor of the weekend health program entitled “The Health Show”. After a few months, she was also made the anchor of the early morning newscast entitled “World News This Morning”.
In 1990, Zahn was offered a job at CBS News, and after joining the network became the co-anchor of the show “CBS This Morning”. She also covered various events as a part of the network, before moving on to work as a part of “CBS Evening News”, while also making contributions to “48 Hours” and “CBS News Sunday Morning”. She would stay for nine years with CBS News, before moving to cable news as a part of the Fox News Channel.
During her time with Fox, she anchored the nightly newscast “Fox Report”, and would eventually launch her own news program entitled “The Edge with Paula Zahn”. After two years with Fox, it was discovered that she was in negotiations with CNN, which led to the company firing her for an alleged breach of contract. Fox News would file a lawsuit against her, but it was disallowed by a New York State Supreme Court judge. She moved to CNN in September 2001, and was supposedly not initially supposed to appear as a part of programming, but quickly joined the morning news shift.
CNN and Present Work
Paula would go on to launch her own show with CNN, this time entitled “American Morning with Paula Zahn”, and in 2003, she would also become the host of the program “Live from the Headlines”, before going on to another show entitled “Paula Zahn Now”. She subsequently announced her resignation from CNN, as she wanted to take a break before moving on to another role, although she mentioned in an interview that she had no idea what she was going to do next. However, in 2008 she would become a co-host of the WNET show entitled “SundayArts”.
Her next project would be with Investigation Discovery, with which she started a true crime documentary series entitled “On the Case with Paula Zahn” a project that she continues to work on to this day, also as the producer.
