Now that Kathie Lee Gifford has officially announced that she’s leaving the Today show after 11 years next April, many fans are wondering just how much money the 65-year-old TV star is leaving behind with her NBC salary. Well, lucky for you, we’ve got the answer!
According to multiple reports, Kathie Lee makes around $2 million per year co-hosting Today‘s fourth hour with Hoda Kotb. Not bad, right?! Considering she’s been on the show more than 10 years, KLG has likely pocketed around $20 million just from working at NBC alone.
In addition to her Today salary, Kathie Lee’s net worth is thought to be about $30 million from her nearly 50 years in showbiz. Long before she joined the NBC team, the mom-of-two, of course, hosted Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee, authored several books, and has worked as a singer, songwriter, and actress.
So how does Kathie Lee’s net worth compare to the bank accounts of her Today show co-stars? Anchor Savannah Guthrie reportedly has a $7 million yearly salary from NBC but has an overall net worth of around $2 million. Hoda allegedly makes the same salary as Savannah and has a net worth of $12 million. Al Roker is reportedly worth about $30 million, Carson Daly allegedly has $25 million in the bank, Natalie Morales‘ reported net worth is $16 million, and Jenna Bush Hager is allegedly worth $4 million.
Before she recently left NBC after questioning why blackface Halloween costumes are “racist,” Megyn Kelly reportedly had a $23 million yearly salary with Today and a $69 million contract with the network. And disgraced TV star Matt Lauer — who was fired from Today following sexual misconduct allegations in November 2017 — was reportedly being paid $20 million per year.
