Born on August 20th 1946, Connie Chung is an American-born journalist. She has worked as an anchor as well as a television reporter in several channels. Chung’s current estimated net worth stands at $15 million as a result of being in the profession for about 40 years.
During the early stages of her reporting career, Chung worked as a correspondent for the “CBS Evening News”. Chung then moved on to southern California, where she joined CBS, KNXT, which is now known as KCBS. Chung later worked for many news stations through her career, such as the NBC, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC. During her career, Chung has interviewed a lot of popular personalities from time to time. On 5th January, 1995, Chung interviewed Kathleen Gingrich, mother of the then republican, Newt Gingrich. That interview reportedly turned out to be quite controversial, as Chung insisted Mrs. Gingrich to “whisper” to her a certain secret that concerns Hillary Clinton. On April 1995, Chung was in another controversy by asking the Oklahoma City Fire Department spokesman whether they were capable of handling the “Bomb Situation” that had aroused in the city. Based on the situation, it was a very insensitive question from Chung. She was eventually demoted from her job by CBS.
In the course of her career, Chung has also interviewed other famous people like Martina Navratilova, Claus von Bulow and Gary Condit. She made her millions through her career in extensive, undaunted reporting.
