Tom Joyner Net Worth $30 Million

So how rich is Tom Joyner? It is reliably estimated that Tom’s net worth is $30 million, the main source of his wealth being Tom’s career as a radio host. Tom studied at Tuskegee University, where he graduated with a degree in sociology. At first Tom wanted to become a musician and even joined a band, but unfortunately the band was not very successful, so Tom had to think of something else in order to support himself. While still studying, Tom was a part of college radio and later, after graduating he started working in various radio stations. This was the time when Tom Joyner’s net worth began growing.

In 1978, Tom moved to Chicago, and there worked at radio station “WVON”, for a short time before becoming part of another radio station, “WBMX-FM”. This added a lot to Tom’s net worth. In 1985 he received an offer to work at “KKDA-FM” and “WGCI-FM”, and started working at both radio stations involving some travel, but this made his net worth grow. In 1994 Tom got an opportunity to host his own show, “The Tom Joyner Morning Show”, which soon became very popular and had a huge impact on the growth of Tom Joyner’s net worth. In 2005 the television program called “The Tom Joyner Show” was created. Despite the popularity of the show it was cancelled in 2006 because of production costs.

In addition a book was released about Tom’s life and career, written by Mary Flowers Boyce and called “I’m Just a DJ but…It Makes Sense to Me”. This also added to Joyner’s net worth. Tom Joyner has also appeared in two movies: “Madea Goes to Jail”, and “The Gospel”. There is no doubt that soon we will see his new projects. During his career Tom has won the “NAB Marconi Radio Award” and was involved in such halls of fame as “The National Radio Hall of Fame”, “The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame” and the “International Civil Right Walk of Fame”. It is clear that Tom is a really acclaimed radio host and that his work is appreciated and admired by many. Talking about Tom’s personal life, he was first married to Dora Chatmon with whom he has two sons, and then to Donna Richardson from 2000-2012.

Finally, Tom Joyner is one of the most successful radio hosts, who has worked hard in order to achieve the acclaim and popularity. Although Joyner is 65 years old, he still continues his career and will probably do this for a long time. So there is a high chance that Tom Joyner’s net worth will become higher.
