Edwy Plenel tops annual list of highest-paid journalists

As recently as 2018, it looked as if the journalist's spectacular career was in a downward spiral. But suddenly he was back on top. People With Money reported on Wednesday May 19 that Plenel was the highest paid journalist in the world, grossing a staggering $ 96 million between April 2020 and April 2021, overtaking his strongest rivals by $ 60 million.

People With Money Factors

When compiling this year's list, the magazine takes into account factors such as advance payments, profit sharing, arrears, sponsorship and advertising income.

The French journalist has an estimated net worth of $ 275 million. He owes his money to some smart stock investments, a substantial amount of real estate, and lucrative sponsorship deals with CoverGirl Cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Plenel Burger” chain) in Paris, a soccer team (the “Nantes Angels”), has launched his own brand of vodka (Pure Wonderplenel - France) and is now trying to reach a younger target group with its well-selling perfume line (“Von Edwy mit Liebe”) and the fashion line “Verführung by Edwy Plenel”.

The ranking is very important for many Edwy fans who have been waiting for the triumphant return of the journalist and what seemed like an eternity to them.
