After all, George is one of the highest paid television journalists in the United States: according to our sources his annual salary is $9 million! And all this financial success did not strike him a year ago: George’s income has been huge ever since he gained prominence as a director of Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign. And how did he land this prestigious position which significantly contributed to the growth of George Stephanopoulos net worth? To answer this question, let’s start from his early life.
As you could probably tell by his last name, George is of Greek origin: both of his parents descended from this old European country. Nikki” Gloria (née Chafos) and Robert George Stephanopoulos both had a huge influence on their son‘s personality and career choice. Robert, his father, was a priest and Dean Emeritus of the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New York City. He raised George as a Greek Orthodox and inspired him so much, he has actually considered becoming a priest and studied theology at Balliol College, Oxford . However, in the end the would-be millionaire decided to follow in the footsteps of his mother, who was a director of the national news service of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. He started pursuing a career in broadcasting while still studying political sciences at the Columbia University. By the way, at Columbia Stephanopoulos was a salutatorian of his class and received Harry S. Truman Scholarship. It is not surprising that as ne of the most talented students of the year he did not have much problem trying to find a job.

As Clinton won the elections and became a president, George started working as de facto press secretary. George stood by Clinton‘s side even as he was undergoing the big scandal. For example, he has defended the first couple by saying: „There has been an awful lot of time and money spent looking at the president over the last four years The American people saw through those investigations. They voted for the president. And despite all of this time and attention, nothing has turned up because the president and the first lady did nothing wrong.” Speaking about the more recent sources of George Stephanopoulos net worth, he has recently been working as ABC News chief Anchor, hosting Good Morning America and This Week.
