Oprah — $2.9 Billion
The richest talk show host of all time is Oprah Winfrey. While her talk show made her famous, it’s her separate business ventures that made her a billionaire. She’s not just a talk show host. She’s a producer, director, actress and author. She owns a magazine, a television network and it seems that half the celebrities and talk show hosts in the world owe their fame to her. She’s responsible for making Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Suze Orman, Rachel Ray and many others household names. It’s why she’s worth $2.9 billion.
