Dan Abrams is a media mogul and television host who works for ABC News as the chief legal correspondent. On SiriusXM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel, he broadcasts The Dan Abrams Show: Where Politics Meets The Law.
Floyd Abrams, an attorney, and his mother, Efrat Abrams, gave birth to the seasoned media personality on May 20, 1966. He graduated from Columbia Law School with a Juris Doctor degree.
In 1994, he began his professional career as a reporter for Court TV. He later joined NBC News as a Chief Legal Correspondent in 1997 and later went to NBC-owned station MSNBC.
From 2006 to 2007, he was the General Manager of MSNBC and hosted the show The Abrams Report.
In 2011, Abrams joined ABC News
After more than a decade with NBC, Abrams joined ABC News in February 2011 as the network’s Chief Legal Analyst. In his early years, he also worked as a replacement anchor on Good Morning America.
He remains Chief Legal Analyst at ABC, where he also anchors the late-night show Nightline and is a regular contributor to the discussion show The View.
Abrams was also a host of the A&E channel’s Live PD show from October 2016 to June 2020.
How much money does he have?
In addition to his pay, the Manhattan native makes a sizable profit from his entertainment and news websites. Mediaite, Gossip Cop, The Braiser, and Law & Crime are just a few of the news and entertainment websites he’s founded.
Similarly, his book, ‘Lincoln’s Last Trial: The Murder Case That Propelled Him to the Presidency,’ was a top ten New York Times bestseller when it was released in June 2018 – and that must have helped to his net worth.
‘Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About Everything Else,’ is Abrams’ other popular book.
The book was declared a Washington Post bestseller and has been translated into Russian, Indonesian, Croatian, and Swedish, among other languages.
Abrams has amassed a sizable net worth as a result of his involvement in numerous professional undertakings. He has a net worth of $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In 2003, he was diagnosed with cancer
When Abrams was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July 2003, he had a severe health problem. Later, following surgery to remove a tumor from his testicles and lymph nodes from his belly, the ABC News correspondent was cancer-free.
In September 2004, the media personality made the first public announcement of the news in a statement.
For the first time, I spoke publicly about what had previously been a very private matter: my battle with testicular cancer.
He continued, “It was a topic I had only talked with a few friends and family members up until now. I think I would have kept it that way if it hadn’t been for Sean Kimerling.”
Abrams and his partner have a son
Since 2009, Abrams has been married to Florinka Pesenti, his long-term girlfriend. Pesenti was a winner of the reality show The Amazing Race 3 in 2002 and worked as the director of public relations for Gucci.
They also have a son, Everett Floyd Abrams, whom they welcomed into the world in 2012. However, the television host has yet to disclose whether or not he is already married to his girlfriend. Not only that, but Abrams is a little more discreet about her, as seen by the fact that he rarely reveals her on social media. He, on the other hand, frequently posts photos of himself and his son.
The three-person family lives in Manhattan, according to the New York Times.
