The TV show host and author Chris Hayes's remarkable hard work and determination have allowed Hayes to amass a hefty net worth. 

Hayes got his break on television in 2010 when he was a guest host in The Rachel Maddow show. From there, he embarked on his career as an anchor on MSNBC with his first full-time show, Up with Chris Hayes. The weekend morning political talks show discussed in-depth about current issues, which ended in 2013.

Upon the show’s success, Hayes began hosting All In with Chris Hayes shortly from April 1, 2013, which is still airing on MSNBC. 

Taking over the show at thirty-four, Hayes became the youngest prime-time TV show host in the country. 

With his incredible talent and strong connection with his audience, the show won Emmy Awards in 2015 and 2018. He took to Twitter to announce his 2015’s win by posting a photo holding the coveted gold award.

The Emmy winner’s dedication and determination for the show’s success were transparent when talking to the Holywood Reporter in 2017. He mentioned that ratings were not his top priority for the show’s success and added: 

‘I want to be No. 1. We want to be the most-watched show in our time slot. That’s the goal.’

Similarly, in 2018 the news anchor launched a podcast named Why Is This Happening?. Undoubtedly, the podcast was a hit, ranking in the sixth position on the iTunes chart. He announced the achievement on Instagram with a humorous caption: 

‘Currently #6 on the Tunes charts. If I catch up to Joe Rogan, do I get to be part of the Intellectual Dark Web?’
