Who is Sanjay Gupta and what is his net worth?
Gupta, “a trusted guide to viewers worldwide,” has a net worth of $12million.
He has been a comfort to many people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In early March of 2020, Gupta wrote an op-ed “announcing the network would refer to the novel coronavirus outbreak as a ‘pandemic,’ ahead of both the WHO and the CDC,” according to his CNN bio.
“Throughout 2020 into 2021, Gupta reaffirmed his role as a trusted guide to viewers worldwide on navigating between facts and fiction surrounding Covid-19 and the pandemic.”
Gupta has been married to Rebecca Olson since 2004, and they share three daughters – Sage Ayla, Soleil Asha, and Sky Anjali.
