Neal Boortz hails from a military family, the son of Neal Boortz, Sr. who was a pilot in the US Marine Corps, serving in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam. Thus, he spent his childhood time divided between various locations, as the family moved frequently. He attended High School at Tustin Union High School in Tustin, California for two years, after which he moved with his family to Florida, where he continued education at Pensacola High School. Upon matriculation in 1963, he enrolled at Texas A&M University; however, he didn’t graduate but later went to John Marshall Law School in Atlanta, Georgia, earning his degree in 1977. During his time in Texas, he worked at the WTAW-AM radio station, and when he moved to Georgia he worked a number of odd jobs, before he was hired at another radio station. Parallel with the job, he attended the Law School, and after graduation he worked at his own law company from 1977 to 1993, when he closed his company in order to pursue a career as a radio host.
Thus, his career on the radio began in the early 1970s, when he was hired at the WRNG radio station, after which he transferred to WGST, but left in 1992. He signed an exclusive contract with the WSB radio station, and since then his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth and popularity. He launched his own daily radio program called “The Neal Boortz Show”, and thanks to that he was named as one of the 25 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America by Talkers Magazine. The show was produced by Royal Marshall, and Belinda Skelton, and soon was on air on Cox Radio, owned by WSB, and had enormous success, winning Best Radio Program, Any Type award, and becoming the sixth overall most listened to radio program in the country, which added a considerable amount to his net worth. Thanks to his accomplishments, Neal was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2009. Unfortunately, the show ended in 2013.
Apart from his career as a radio personality, Neal is also known as an author, who published his first book “The Commencement Speech You Need To Hear” in 1997; in the following year his second book came out entitled “The Terrible Truth About Liberals”. In 2005, he co-wrote “The FairTax Book” together with John Linder, which became a best seller, and was turned into the documentary film “An Inconvenient Tax”, which increased his net worth by a large margin. Two years later, he published “Somebody’s Gotta Say It”, and the last one was “FairTax: The Truth” (2008).
If to talk about his personal life, Neal Boortz is married to Donna, with whom he has one child. They spend their time divided between residences in Atlanta, Georgia, and Naples, Florida. In free time, Neal enjoys playing golf, and he is a pilot who owns two airplanes.
