Bream has worked in plenty of different places during her career in news, but she currently works mostly as a correspondent for the Supreme Court with Fox News. Working out of Washington D.C., she’s also the host of “Fox News @ Night,” and she also began hosting “Fox News Sunday” in 2022. It seems like Bream could have done it all – she attended law school at Florida State and then worked for the Florida Attorney General.
While studying for her different degrees, she competed in beauty pageants to pay for her education. She won Miss Virginia in 1990 and then competed in Miss America in 1991. She also managed to win Miss Florida in 1995 and then placed fourth in the 1995 Miss America. For all that, she earns eight hundred thousand a year.
Lesley Stahl - $40 million
As one of America's most honored and experienced broadcast journalists, her career has been marked by political revelations, investigations, as well as award-winning foreign reporting, a job that won her the Lifetime Achievement Emmy in 2003 for overall excellence in reporting.
She began her 30th season on 60 Minutes in September 2019, having joined the broadcast as a correspondent in March 1991. Lesley is also the author of two best-selling books: "Reporting Live," about her work as a White House Correspondent, and more recently, "Becoming Grandma."
Hallie Jackson - $200,000
While Hallie Jackson is a little newer to the job of anchoring the news, she has plenty of experience facing an audience and reporting news thanks to her time as a White House Correspondent for NBC News. Her time at NBC began when she was the dedicated embedded reporter for Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. Jackson currently wears a couple of hats for the company, including working as a Senior Washington correspondent, a news anchor for both MSNBC and NBC News Now, and as a backup anchor for “Today.”
She rose so fast and has become such a well-known public figure that her alma mater, John Hopkins University, invited Jackson to speak at their 2020 graduation ceremony. She’s raking in about two hundred thousand a year for all her hard work, and there’s plenty of room to grow.
Dana Perino - $1 Million
Perino has been rather private about how much she makes, but best estimates have placed it at about a million dollars a year. And she’s earned it since she’s an anchor with Fox News that has also worked under George W. Bush as the second female White House Press Secretary, after Dee Dee Myers. She also served as a member of the Broadcasting Board of Governors in 2010.
Perino has done even more, including having a brief time working as the Editorial Director for the Crown Publishing Group in 2011. She’s now focused on hosting a number of shows, including the talk show “The Five,” as well as leaving “The Daily Briefing” in 2021 in order to be the anchor for the Fox segment “America’s Newsroom.”
Norah O’Donnell - $3.8 Million
Since she’s seen regularly on both “CBS Evening News” and as a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” Norah O’Donnell easily earns her estimated three-point-eight million dollar salary. She’s worked on a large number of programs for CBS and was even the Chief White House Correspondent for the network from 2011 to 2012.
Her first job in news was as a staff writer for “Roll Call,” which covers news and other events that take place on Capitol Hill. After joining NBC, she’s been on “Today Show,” “NBC Nightly,” “Dateline NBC,” and some segments with Chris Matthews. She’s since moved over to CBS, where she became the co-anchor on “CBS This Morning” in 2012 and then became the lead anchor for “CBS Evening News,” just the third woman to be the weekday anchor.
