“O” My | Oprah is TV’s Number One Earner!

4 08 2008


While athletes routinely boast of signing lucrative $100 million plus deals in sports and entertainment, talk show host and billionaire continues to stack paper at astronomical rates.

According to an upcoming TV Guide’s annual star salary survey, the Chicago-based talker is paid a whopping $385 million a year. To put that in perspective, the New York Yankees have an annual team payroll of over $230 million a year – for the entire team!

Clearly “Team Oprah” is doing something right and as the saying goes “to who much is given, much is expected.” With her charitable work around the globe, it seems that Winfrey is doing her part to leave the world in a much better shape than when she arrived.

For the complete list of star salaries, pick up the new issue of TV Guide, out August 7.
