To give some background information, Al Michaels was raised in Brooklyn by his parents Lila Roginsky and James Samuel Michaels. Later, the family moved to Los Angeles. Al has been interested in sports since his childhood, and he is still an avid fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was educated at Alexander Hamilton High School, and then studied radio and television as well as journalism at Arizona State University. As a student he worked as a sports journalist for The State Press, the independent student newspaper. This was the first step towards a very successful career which later proved to be financially profitable and added huge sums to the total size of Al Michaels net worth.

His first job was landed in the television game show “The Dating Game” (1963) in which he had to choose women to appear on the show. In 1964, Michaels began his career closely related to sport, when he was employed by the team of Los Angeles Lakers, with responsibility for public relations. In 1977, he started to work as the announcer of the live game telecast “Monday Night Baseball” (1977–1985) aired on ABC Sports channel, and in fact Al Michaels worked for this channel from 1977 to 2006. He has delivered a number of significant broadcasts, among which are the National League Championship Series 1972, the ice hockey medal round match between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Winter Olympics 1980, the World Series 1985 and 1989, American League Championship Series 1986 and many other sports events.

Since 2006, Al Michaels has been working as a presenter of the weekly television broadcast “NBC Sunday Night Football” (2006–present) directed by Drew Esocoff. Other significant works on NBC have included the daytime host of the Winter Olympics 2010 in Vancouver, Summer Olympics 2012 in London and Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi; also commentating the “Boxing on NBC” alongside Sugar Ray Leonard and Marv Albert. These projects added considerably to Al’s net worth.

The work done by Al Michaels has brought him a number of awards and honours, including five Emmy Awards as the Outstanding Sports Personality; being named the National Sportscaster of the Year three times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association; Sportscaster of the Year by American Sportscasters Association and Washington Journalism Review among many other awards. Of course, these have helped add to the total size of Al Michaels net worth.
