Who is Merri Kelly Hannity?

Merri Kelly Hannity was born in 2002 in the United States of America, and is a tennis player, but probably better known for being the daughter of political commentator Sean Hannity and his wife Jill Rhodes, but has recently drawn a lot of media attention due to her achievements in tennis.

The Wealth of Merri Kelly Hannity

How rich is Merri Kelly Hannity? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, mostly earned through success in tennis, and supposedly from wealth accumulated by her parents – her father has a net worth estimated at $80 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Tennis

Growing up, Merri showed an inclination towards sports, and would eventually develop a love for tennis. She is the second child of her parents and while practicing tennis decided that she wanted to improve, which later led her to compete in the amateur levels, which attracted the attention of many also because she is Sean Hannity’s daughter.

She is currently in 11th grade at the school of Cold Spring Harbor. It is known that she represents school’s tennis team and she has won several tournaments in recent years. During ninth grade, she won the Nassau tennis singles title in a match against best friend Courtney Kowalsky who plays for Oyster Bay. The two have known to be battling each other for several years, and after meeting on the court, became close friends. According to her coach, Merri has a tight game and is mentally tough.

Her Father – Sean Hannity

Her father is best known as a part of Fox News, being the host of the television show “Hannity” as well as the radio talk show called “The Sean Hannity Show”. He’s won several honors over the course of his career and has written three best-selling books – “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism”, “Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama’s Radical Agenda”, and “Deliver Us from Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism”.

Merri Kelly’s father is known to be the promoter of numerous conspiracy theories well – he’s spread doubt on Barack Obama’s birthplace, false stories on Hilary Clinton’s health, and conspiracy theories on the murder of Seth Rich. He is also known to be one of the early supporters of Donald Trump and has been using his influence to promote Trump’s current presidential reign, including criticizing other media outlets for attacking Trump’s character and decisions. He is also a very wealthy businessman and is known to own close to 900 residential properties collectively worth over $80 million. He’s was also an executive producer of the film entitled “Let There Be Light” which aired in 2017.

Controversies and Family

Merri Kelly’s mother and her brother have mainly stayed in the background, preferring not to draw any media attention, though unsurprisingly her mother Jill is known to have supported Sean throughout his journalistic career. Merri Kelly has not stated any political alignment or standings, and looks to be more interested in pursuing her sports career.

During 2016 and 2017, a number of high profile Fox News personalities were accused by multiple women of sexual harassment; included in the accusations were Roger Ailes, Bill Shine, and Bill O’Reilly. Her father has been criticized for siding with those who were accused, particularly Bill O’Reilly who Sean used as a guest on his show after he was fired from Fox News, much to many employees’ dismay. He also attacked several Democrats after accusations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, even defending Weinstein. The criticism has not gone unnoticed, and many believe that the issue also caused some concerns as to whether or not Sean was involved in the harassment cases, or if the issues have extended to affect the family. Despite everything, their family still seems to be intact.

Is Merri Kelly Hannity on Social Media?

Despite her strong activity in tennis, Merri Kelly has maintained a generally low profile thanks to her not having any strong social media presence. She doesn’t have any accounts associated with Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. In this way, she protects her privacy and that of her family, especially with all the criticism her father takes due to the nature of his work. Her father is very active on social media as is common with journalists, as they keep people updated online.
