Bryant Gumbel is one of those brave people who have fought and against cancer. So, how is the sportscaster spending his cancer free life? Being a sportscaster, he must have a splendid net worth to enjoy his life with. So, who does he enjoy his amazing net worth with?

Enjoying Net Worth with Family:

Bryant Gumbel has an astounding net worth that can be estimated to approximately 18 million dollars. Though his salary is unknown, most of his earnings are based on his career as a journalist. Beside cameo appearances on the sitcom, ‘Seinfield’ and the movie, ‘The Weather Man’, he isn’t seen in any other ventures.

In his entire career, he is mostly known for dedicating 15 years of his career hosting ‘The Today’s Show’ on NBC. He had originally begun his career in NBC sports. After leaving ‘Today’, he was seen shortly in his own prime-time news magazine called ‘Public Eye’ and co-hosted CBS’s ‘The Early Show.' He also presently works on the NFL Network and his HBO’s acclaimed investigative series ‘Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel’. This sure does contribute a lot in his net worth.

He was previously married to June Baranco and has two children named Bradley, 37 and Jillian, 33 from her.
