90 Most Richest Journalists (Americans Again top the list)

Becoming one of the well-known name and richest journalist is not an easy task. We all know, Journalism is a great and quite interesting job. Personally, I admire journalists and also wanted to join this field when I was 18 years old. Why? Because they are brave and never afraid of telling the truth in front of people. They put their lives in danger for the sake of truth.

If they have to reveal the truth behind any issue in front of people, then they will do it at any cost. That is why they deserve huge salaries and good packages like house from company, new car, houses like them, health, educational allowances to their families and much more.

Qualities which made any journalist wealthy and successful:

Usually, journalists are bold, brave, and compassionate. But the qualities that I most like in the above journalists include;

  • They have the huge knowledge about all aspects of life.
  • They learn different languages so that they can understand different people.
  • They are thoughtful, good listeners, versatile, and curious. You can be a good journalist if you have curiosity in your nature. As you will search the best only if you are curious about that.
  • They are researchers and can work in a team. They know how to co-operate with others and make their ways.
  • They have a hunger for news so they are always in search of some great news through which they can earn their name as well money.

Well, if you want to join this field then the foremost thing that you have to contain is aptitude and attitude. (Believe me it is most important)

Journalist who earned millions in their carrier

Journalists get huge money as well as fame. But you should not earn income from illegal ways like bribery or false reporting. We all know the proverb which we learnt in primary school “Honesty is the best policy”.

As you can see, the richest journalist in the world is Lord Lloyd-Webber having the net worth of $885 Million and off-course the Viscount Rothermere family who has worth of $1.095 Billion which is one of the world richest family. So, it is a great option to join this profession and become popular, rich one like them and enjoy the facilities of life.

My final words are, you must join this respectful field if you have passion, and also want to spend your life in a luxurious ways. Well, do not forget the fact that you will not be the richest person right at the time of starting of your career. First, you have to do work just by keeping the passion in the mind. You can get at the peak of your career by following the step-by-step route.
