When it comes to earning, Darlene deserves an impressive salary from her long stint at WNBC as a reporter. Still, when posed with the question, "How much does Darlene Rodriguez make?" the answer is not definitive.
The NBC employee receives an average salary of $72K. However, as one of the network's most prominent faces, she commands a much higher figure earning.
Sources cite her salary to range anywhere from $100,000 to over $750,000. Admittedly, the spread is enormous. Consequently, her net worth has received a boost due to her exertions with the network.

Darlene Rodriguez & Husband David Rodriguez Share Stong Bond
Darlene is married to her 47-year-old husband, David Rodriguez. He is a highly decorated veteran of the New Rochelle Police Department.
In 2008, her husband, David, was accused of misusing his authority to have sexual contact with a teen girl.
David was initially charged with first-degree rape for allegedly being involved in raping a 17-year-old girl. He and other cops arrested her then-35-year-old boyfriend for domestic violence.
Later, David was sentenced to a one-year conditional discharge and ordered to stay away from the victim for five years.
Considering the severity of her husband's crime and her public personality, many commentators speculated that Darlene's marriage was heading towards a divorce.
However, contrary to the beliefs, Darlene stood by her husband, stating that she and her husband had a tremendous amount of love in their marriage, and they would like to get on with their lives as a family.
She also clarified that she was not seeking a divorce from her husband, instead, she wanted to support him through his tough times.
After the incident, David resigned from his job as a police officer.

On the occasion of her son's birthday, she uploaded a childhood picture of her son with a lovely caption. The caption stated that the birth of her son made her heart grow ten sizes bigger.
