Norah Morahan O’Donnell, professionally known as Norah O’Donnell, is an anchor of the CBS Evening News.
Hailing from a career record of Chief White Houe Correspondent, she is also a happily married woman.
She has been in a two-decade-long marriage with Restauranteur Geoff Tracy.
Chief Married to A Chef
The Emmy award-winning journalist is in a 20-year long marriage with chef and businessman Geoff Tracy.
Her husband is a professional chef and is the owner of four restaurants. He had already started his career before marrying Tracy back in 2000 when he opened his first restaurant called Chef Geoff’s.
But let’s say Norah came as a lucky charm in his life as after their marriage, the successful businessman went on to open three more restaurants in a span of 8 years.
O’Donnell’s husband recently wished his beautiful wife a happy anniversary with a sweet Instagram caption. He wrote,
Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary to my forever bride and partner in all adventures-Can't wait for the next 20
The couple also recently celebrated the Baptism day of their new beautiful goddaughter.
Alongside their goddaughter, the two share twins of their own. While explaining how she juggled her professional life and personal life during people magazine, she said,
I was on a call with someone from the White House and my daughter was shouting at me that the printer doesn’t work!”
The mother of three seems to be no 1 fan of her husband, which is evident on her Instagram bio, which has labeled him as her Number 1.
And her chef husband himself has very funnily inserted his beautiful wife in his bio, saying how O’Donnell is his source of news.
Seeing how these two professionals manage to cater to their work and family is truly beautiful, and, to say the least, the two have managed to be professional in that arena as well.
Journey To The Chief Correspondent And More
O’Donnell, age, 47 as much as is happy with her personal life; is equally steady on her professional life.
Initially working as a staff writer for Roll Call, she went on to spend twelve years of her career at the NBC network.
During her time in NBC, she got the prestigious opportunity to be Chief Washington Correspondent for MSNBC, alongside being a commentator for The Today Show.
But after all the responsibilities, the 47-year-old felt she needed a change.
Therefore, in 2011 she shifted to CBS news and has not looked back since. She, later on, went on to fill her roles in CBS Evening News, CBS This Morning, and is now working as a CBS Overnight News Anchor.
Her success, however, was not kept inside the walls; the mother of three, with her influential work and contribution to the journalism sector, won a place as Washington’s 100 most powerful woman and also won an Emmy in 2018 for her six-month investigation and report on Sexual Assault in the Air Force Academy for CBS.
A staggering Salary And Net worth
Despite being professional at what she does, her work, however, is filled with risks. Yet, her courage is commendable, from reporting on fragile matters that could lead her in legal trouble to going head to head with big politicians.
But her courage doesn’t limit to being on a studio; rather, she also has covered the news on the 9/11 incident for which she was awarded the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award in 2001.
With her incredible experience and a career of more than two decades, she bags an annual salary of $6 million.
Where some personalities take a lifetime to earn what she earns in a year, her position in the industry is nothing less than inspiring.
Therefore, with the staggering salary comes a staggering net worth of $18 million.
From her husband being a successful chef and businessman to her being one of the top paid journalists to having a happy family, the life of this amazing woman looks nothing less than a dream. It inspires us to get out of our bed and work hard to have a life like hers.
