What is Her Salary?
Sara Haines has come a long way in her career in television. Every average TV lover in America is well familiar with her face. Working as a top staff for ABC News is the dream of many aspiring journalists, and for Haines, her dream came true in 2012, 13 years after college. For those 13 years before she got to ABC, Haines was getting all the necessary training she needed working for NBC.
Scoring a job as a weekend news anchor for the morning TV show Good Morning America was another milestone for Haines but was not enough to measure as her dream job. In an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2014, Haines was asked what her ultimate dream job would be to which she responded; “a show similar to that of Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan or The View.”
Two years later, Haines got her first dream job, which was working as one of the co-hosts on The View, that job lasted for two years before she got something bigger, GMA Day with Michael Strahan.
Sara Haines has enjoyed a steady rise in her career and hosting gigs like the ones she’s had come with paychecks hefty enough to place her net worth at an estimated $6 million. Her figures are certain to rise should GMA Day attract rave reviews.
