According to the CNN website, news anchors earn annual salaries ranging from forty thousand dollars ($40,000) to several million dollars. This figure largely depends on seniority, viewership/market response and how much experience he has. With that, it should come as no surprise to find that the CNN International anchor and correspondent, who has spent more than two decades with the network, earns a monthly salary of forty thousand dollars ($40,000) and an annual salary of four hundred and eighty thousand dollars ($480,000).
When it comes to her net worth, there are conflicting reports on what exactly she might be worth. A few publications estimate her to be worth $3 million while another put the figure much higher at $10 million. Either way, Anderson is definitely one of the highest earning people on the network, though she still has a long way to go to catch up to fellow cast members like Anderson Cooper, Richard Quest, and Wolf Blitzer.
The journalist, who is quite active with her 5,000 Instagram followers and 66,000 Twitter followers, in the past has been suggested as gay. No information was provided to support this claim, and Anderson herself never came forward to deny or accept the allegations. The homosexual rumors could stem from the lack of information about a possible spouse, but since no one seems to know anything, all options are still being considered.
