Tony Kornheiser was raised in a Jewish family as the only child of Estelle and Ira Kornheiser. He attended George W. Hewlett High School on Long Island, and then became a student of English language at the Binghamton University SUNY, from which he graduated with a BA degree in 1970. In the same year, Kornheiser’s career began as he was hired as a writer for Newsday, also working as a teacher until 1976, when he was approached by the New York Times. He stayed with the largest newspaper of New York until 1979, when he agreed to move to Washington D.C., and write for the Washington Post, becoming the general assignment reporter in Style and Sports. Five year later, he became a full time columnist for sport. During his writing career, Kornheiser became known for his sarcastic humor, and offensive critiques towards players and whole teams.

During the 1990s, Kornheiser’s popularity had outgrown the newspapers, and he was soon introduced as the radio host of his own show, entitled “The Tony Kornheiser Show” on WTEM in the beginning, but from 1998 until 2004 it was aired on ESPN radio. In 2006, Kornheiser’s net worth increased by a large margin, as he was selected to host the Monday Night Football show for the entire 2006 season, which marked the beginning of his television career. To speak further, he became the co-host of the popular ESPN show “Pardon The Interruption”, which eventually became the highest rated sports talk show on ESPN.

In addition to this, Kornheiser can also praise himself as an author, which has also benefited his net worth. So far, he has published four books, “The Baby Chase” (1983), “Pumping Irony: Working Out The Angst Of A Lifetime” (1995), “Bald As I Wanna Be”, and his latest “I’m Back For More Cash: A Tony Kornheiser Collection (Because You Can’t Take Two Hundred Newspapers into the Bathroom)” (2002).

When it comes to his personal life, Tony Kornheiser has been married to Karrill since 1973. The couple has two children and currently live in Washington, D.C. In August of 2006, Kornheiser announced that he had skin cancer, but that he had successfully completed treatment during that summer.
