If her last name sounds a bit familiar, it’s because she’s the daughter of the former governor of Utah, Jon Huntsman. When you’re born into a family of politicians, you have many opportunities at your disposal. She started working behind the cameras for Good Morning America when she was just 16 years old. As cool as an opportunity as that was, she was soon to learn that she despised the job. She loathed her time there so much that she was actually about to give up working in television. But, when she got her big break working as a host on MSNBC, she realized that she wanted to stay in the field.
Several years after that, she started working for Fox News as a general assignment reporter. This assignment led her to become a co-host on Fox and Friends, a morning show on FOX. Nowadays, you can find her co-hosting ABC’s The View. She is reported to have an estimated net worth of $20 million and make $3 million per year.
Erin Burnett – $3M

Bianna Golodryga – $3M

Although she hoped to work in the financial services industry, after the economic crisis, she chose to pursue a different career path. She started off as a producer at CNBC before becoming an on-air correspondent.
In 2004, she received an honorable title as one of the top journalists under 30 and was offered a spot as a correspondent for ABC. She also took on the position as a weekend co-anchor for Good Morning America for four years between 2010 and 2014 after co-anchor Kate Snow left the show. Her salary is estimated to be $3 million.
Robin Meade – $4.5M
Robin Meade is another female anchor with her own segment, the Morning Express with Robin Meade. It seems like a lot of news anchors are former beauty pageants, and considering that they are hired to work in front of a screen for a living, it does make sense (although we don’t agree with this standard). Meade was the former Miss Ohio in 1992 and a Miss America semi-finalist. She started off her career as a broadcaster with local stations in Ohio.
In 2011, she joined HLN as an anchor, starting the job on September 11. Not the best day to be at a new job... For her work on the Morning Express with Robin Meade, she won an Emmy award. In her spare time, the news anchor is a country singer. In 2011 and 2013, she released two separate albums. She is said to have a net worth of $35 million and a salary of $4 million.
Andrea Mitchell – $5M
Andrew Mitchell has had a long broadcasting career of 50 years. She started as a news director in 1967 at WXPN, a local student radio station. After she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, her first grownup job out of college was as a reporter at KYW radio. Now, she is NBC’s News Chief of Foreign Affairs Correspondent. Also on her resume are gigs in programs like the NBC Nightly News With Lester, Today, Holt, and MSNBC.
Oh, and we couldn’t forget to mention that she anchors her own program, Andrea Mitchell Reports, on MSNBC. Plus, Rachel Maddow likes to frequently have her as a guest. And if Rachel Maddow wants her as a guest, then you can safely assume she’s a big deal.
