George Stephanopoulos' Stunning Net Worth Revealed

George Stephanopoulos, popular news anchor of "Good Morning America" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," has led an intriguing life that has certainly contributed to his shocking net worth. According to Britannica, Stephanopoulos began his career in politics in the early 1980s in the office of Ohio Congressman Ed Feighan — first serving as an aide and eventually as chief of staff.

While he did work on some political campaigns after his time with Rep. Feighan, it was the following decade, in 1992, that things really changed for Stephanopoulos. That year, he went on to serve as a deputy manager for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign, and then became one of Clinton's most trusted advisors (via the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress).

In 1996, Stephanopoulos resigned from the Clinton administration, eventually releasing his tell-all book, "All Too Human: A Political Education," which described his experiences working in the White House. The book went on to No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list, another stream of income for the versatile journalist (via CSPS).
