Sean was raised in New York, in a family of Lillian and Hugh Hannity. Both of his parents were of Irish decent, thus the boy grew up with a slight accent. During his formative years he attended catholic schools, first Sacred Heart Seminary and later St. Pius Preparatory Seminary. After graduation Hannity enrolled at New York University and later transferred to Adelphi University, but did not manage to finish his studies and never earned a scientific degree.
Sean Hannity net worth started to grow in the late 1980s, when he landed a job on his first radio show. Reminiscing those days, Sean has once wondered how in the world he did not get kicked out on the first day. According to himself, he was terrible and could barely find what to say. His conservative political views became public when he responded to the lesbian caller by saying “I feel sorry for you, child”. Sean’s show was cancelled soon after and he went on to work on WBNN in Alabama. His hosting skills developed over the years and eventually Hannity managed to gather a wide and stable audience.
He started his career on television hosting an American television program Hannity & Colmes. His partner on this show was Alan Colmes, a popular radio, television host and liberal political commentator. Needless to say Sean and Alan could barely agree on any topic they have discussed, and that is exactly what made their show popular. Although the two co-hosts were equals and split the salary, Alan’s fortune is incomparable to Sean Hannity net worth: according to media, Colmes holds capital and assets worth $2 million.
What made Sean’s fortune this significantly superior to his colleague’s? Well the most important source of Sean Hannity net worth is his books. His first publication, Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism, which was described as unapologetic diatribe against the liberal ideology, was unexpectedly successful and evolved into “bestseller” verdict. His second book, which reached the stores in 2004, was not any less popular. According to Sean, this second publication was born on his way to the radio show he hosted at the time. He recorded his ideas on the type and wrote it down later.
