Now more than ever, a lot of young journalists have emerged, with each having a unique and dynamic input in world journalism. Among them is Heidi Przybyla, an American journalist who made a name for herself following her unreserved and unconventional comments on several political issues in America. She kickstarted her career in 1997 and has worked with many notable media outlets. Interestingly, Przybyla landed a spot in the limelight in 2017 following her comments on Trump’s antisemitism remark. Since then, she has continued to endear herself to many, as one of the most promising political reporters in America.
While Heidi has become incredibly famous in her career, very little to nothing is known about her personal life and affairs. Although it is known that she is a native of Alexandria – a buzzing city in Virginia, her birth date is given as November 18, 1973. Heidi is said to have developed a keen interest in journalism from an early age and to prepare herself for the professional world, she enrolled at Michigan State University, where she acquired a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Degree in International Relations and German. After graduation, she enrolled at Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat Freiburg, Germany, where she completed a one-year program, graduating in 1994.
How Is Heidi Przybyla Scaling Her Journalism Career?
Heidi’s first break in the world of journalism came in 1997 when she became a reporter for the Virginia-based media outlet, Washington Business Journal. She worked as a general reporter for the company for two years, from 1997 to 1999. Moving up her career ladder, she was recruited by Bloomberg and was made a White House reporter in 1999 – a position she held for five years before she was promoted in 2005.
Following a series of outstanding reports delivered by Heidi, she was then promoted to the position of Senior Political Reporter in 2005. She served in that capacity until 2010 before she rose to the position of Congressional Reporter. While her career at Bloomberg lasted, Heidi, made several headlines with her top-notch reporting style and outstanding work ethic. On leaving Bloomberg News in 2015, Heidi landed a spot on USA Today, where she was made a Senior Political Correspondent.
While working at USA Today, Heidi Przybyla also served as a political analyst for a pay-tv network, MSNBC. Two years later, she began to feature as a National Political Reporter on NBC News. Although Przybyla has been enjoying a burgeoning career, it hasn’t been a bed of roses for her. The journalist is remarkable for her comments on some issues that involve top political juggernauts, especially in Washington’s political circle.
Most notable among these issues is her talk about President Trump’s antisemitism remark. Another incident was when she joined Mark Halperin, a co-Correspondent on Bloomberg, to speak about CNN’s Interview with Hillary Clinton on her political campaign and aspirations. This was on one of Bloomberg’s most-watched television series titled With All Due Respect.
How Much Does She Make From Her Journalism Career?
Taking a look at her over two-decades-long career as a journalist, it won’t be inappropriate to assume that the Virginia-born journalist has played a well-deserved role in her field, especially with media giants like Bloomberg News and USA Today. It won’t also be wrong to assume that while making a name for herself, she also built her financial stance. Going by the salary digits presented by Glassdoor, which states that a reporter’s salary at USA Today stands at $79,982 on average, while that of a journalist is averagely $83,894, annually, it could safely be deduced that Heidi’s annual income is quite huge.
Heidi Przybyla must have also generated more from her previous career at Bloomberg News and Washington Business Journal, respectively. Although her actual net worth is currently unknown, it will not be far-fetched to estimate that it to be running into six digits.
Does She Have a Husband?
When it comes to her personal life, the journalist has managed to keep the details of her love life away from the public. It is not clear if she is in a casual or committed relationship or if she is married. Perhaps, the only thing that people have to point to is a cryptic tweet she made on October 8, 2016. This was during the time of the Clinton-Trump presidential campaigns.
The tweet had to do with Donald Trump but it was the ending sentence that would have caught the attention of most of her fans. The ending of the tweet carried a vague suggestion that she filled the three most important male positions in her life: Dad, brother – and most importantly, husband.
However, it might just have been a tweet and nothing more, nevertheless, no one knows for sure. Even her other activities on social media have not helped to endorse or refute claims for or against her relationship status. It is, therefore, better to state that the TV star prefers to be more focused on taking her professional life to its peak and no doubt, she is working really hard towards achieving that.
