Raised in Chicago, Michael attended St. Ignatius College Preparatory School before earning his degree in journalism from Medill School of Journalism of Northwestern University. He started working as an intern for the Washington Post in the summers of 1979 and 1980 and later was offered a full-time job at the newspaper. His love for sports as well as journalism led him to cover news stories about college sports, NBA, NFL as well as Major League Baseball.

Eventually, Michael was promoted to full-time columnist in 1990, and he served in this position for two whole decades, and his articles were published in the newspaper four or more times in a week. Additionally, he covered 10 summer and winter Olympic Games, so needless to say, his work at the Washington Post was very significant in making Wilbon a multi-millionaire sportscaster as of now.

After leaving his job at Washington Post, Michael went on to work full-time with ESPN, having been part-time until then – he had already been co-hosting the show “Pardon The Interruption” along with Tony Kornheiser since 2001 for the channel. Until today, Michael continues to host the show, and apart from this, he has also contributed to ESPN’s show “The Sports Reporters” and has made appearances in several other shows for the cable network.

Along with ESPN, Michael was also prominent in the ABC’s sports show “NBA Countdown”, which he hosted with television personalities like Jalen Rose, Bill Simmons as well as Magic Johnson. In the show, he used to discuss his ideas about the NBA games before they actually started. Obviously, his career as a sportscaster has not only gained him popularity on television and the field of sports, but has also helped him garner a lot of wealth along the way, as confirmed by his current net worth.

As for his personal life, Michael Ray Wilbon has been married to Sheryl Wilbon since 1997 with whom he shares a son, Matthew Ray Wilbon. The couple currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland and they also own a house in Scottsdale, Arizona. An avid writer and an editor who has edited two, New York best sellers, Michael has also served as a trustee of Northwestern University. As of now, Wilbon enjoys his days working with ESPN and ABC network as a popular sports commentator while his present net worth of $12 million caters to his daily life.
