Brad is the youngest in a Jewish family, and grew up in the Bronx neighborhood. After high school, he enrolled at the prestigious University of Buffalo, and obtained a degree in business and communications. Even while in university, Brad started gaining practical knowledge, working as a ‘gofer’ for Harvey Weinstein, and producing Frank Sinatra`s concert at the Buffalo War Memorial Auditorium, held in 1979.

However, their joint venture ended with a lawsuit against one another, and Grey ventured out on his own; Bernie sold his share of the company to Brad, and Grey renamed it to Brad Grey Television, producing numerous successful television series, variety shows and even films, which only increased his net worth. Some of the most popular titles include TV series “The Sopranos” (1999-2007), “Politically Incorrect” (1996-2002), and “Just Shoot Me” (1997-2003), then films “Dirty Work” (1998), “City by the Sea” (2002), “View from the Top” (2003), and variety shows “The Steve Harvey Show” (1996-2002), “The Larry Sanders Show” (1992-1998), and many other productions, which certainly helped him increase his net worth, but also earned him credit for the position he took in 2005.
