Joe Buck Net Worth $15 Million

Joe Buck is the son of Jack Buck, a former sports commentator, and he spent his childhood in the St. Louis area, where he went to St. Louis Country Day School. He then became a student at Indiana University Bloomington, but according to sources from the university he has never graduated, as he started working on his broadcasting career.

His first job was as a play-by-play commentator for the Louisville Redbirds, which were an affiliate of the St Louis Cardinals, and after that he worked as a reporter for ESPN, covering the Triple-A All-Star Game. Joe`s next engagement was as a reporter for KMOV, which was an affiliate of the St. Louis` CBS, which also added a bit to his net worth, but what was more important, Joe was gaining experience. The same year, he was hired as a telecaster for the Cardinals on local television and KMOX Radio, as Jack took a position on CBS.

In 1994, Joe found a job at Fox Sports, and as a 25 year old, became the youngest ever to announce the beginning of the NFL season. His net worth was growing steadily. Initially he worked as a play-by-play commentator of the NFL games on the #4 NFL broadcast network team, alongside Tim Green who served as color commentator. In 1996, Joe became the play- by-play commentator of Major League Baseball, with the help of Tim McCarver. Ever since then he has been covering Major League Baseball games, and so far has announced 16 World Series and 15 All Star games, which is the most by any play-by-play commentator. In 1997, Joe had to quit commentating the NFL games, as he became more dedicated to MLB, but in 2001 made a return, occasionally filling for Curt Menefee, and in 2002 made a full comeback, and worked as host of the Fox Sport show Fox NFL Sunday during the 2006-2007 season, additional to his work as a play by play commentator. His net worth was still rising.

To speak further of his accomplishments as a sportscaster, Joe signed a contract with the HBO, and was soon given his own show “Joe Buck Live”, which only added to his net worth. However, after a year, Joe cancelled the show, stating that he expected a lot less hassle than the program received in order to be successful, and returned to FOX, as a regular commentator. Most recently, Joe was hired as the new host of NFL Films Presents, which has been on air on Fox Sports since 2014, further adding to his overall net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Joe Buck has been married twice, firstly to Ann Archambault from 1993 to 2011, when they divorced; the couple has two children. He then married Michelle Beisner in 2014. 2011 was horrible for him, as he was diagnosed with a virus which was on his left vocal cord, which drastically diminished his ability to speak. Anyway, he has managed to continue to work as a commentator.
