He earned his net worth as an NFL Insider for ESPN when he was hired in June 2009. Schefter graduated from the University of Michigan and Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. He used to work as an editor of The Michigan Daily. He did an internship for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer before he moved to Denver in 1990 where he began writing for The Rocky Mountain News and later for The Denver Post.
Shchefter began working for ESPN as part of “The Sports Reporters.” He then became a regular substitute Woody Paige on the ESPN show “Around the Horn.” In 2004, he officially joined the NFL Network where he worked as both an analyst and a writer for NFL.com. Occasionally, he worked as a sideline reporter for NBC. He became the most popular sportswriter and analyst in the United States in 2009 and ESPN quickly grabbed him from the NFL Network. He currently works for both ESPN and ESPN radio.
In the January 19, 2009 survey of fans by USA Today, Adam Schefter edged ESPN’s Chris Mortensen for the best (NFL) insider while he was still with the NFL Network. Sports Illustrate writers included him in its “Power 40+” in October 2009. It was a listing of the NFL’s most influential officials, executives, coaches, players and media members. In November 2010, he was selected as the best (NFL) insider in the USA Today poll. In November 2011, he was voted as USA Today’s best “insider” for a third straight year.
