50) Bill Moyers – Net Worth: $1 Million
You may recognize his name from his PBS show NOW with Bill Moyers, but you may be as surprised as I was that he is a Baptist minister.
Here’s his background:
The first of numerous ministers turned legislators (and the other way around) on our rundown is Oklahoma local Bill Moyers. To begin with his profession in journalism with a temporary position with the United States Senate, the young University of Texas graduate got the attention of Senator Lyndon B. Johnson who secured future work for him as a TV manager.
While working in broadcasting, Moyers sought after his other passion – theology – and finished his Master of Divinity in 1959 at which time he turned into an appointed Baptist minister.
I know it wasn’t who I expected.
