Roger Ailes was born to Robert Eugene Ailes and Donna Marie. As a kid, he was educated at Warren City Schools and Warren High School. He attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in 1962. His career in TV started in the city of Cleveland, then Philadelphia, working as a Property Assistant in 1962, Producer in 1965 and Executive Producer in 1967 for KYW-TV’s ‘The Mike Douglas Show.’ His role as the executive producer of the show saw him nominated for a 1968 Emmy Award.

Between 1987 and 1988, Roger was credited along with Lee Atwater with guiding President George H. W. Bush in the Republican preliminaries. He scripted and produced the ad ‘Revolving Door,’ for Bush’s general elections campaign. In 1988, he wrote a book ‘You Are the Message: Secrets of the Master Communicators,’ discussing some of the strategies and philosophies for succeeding in the public eye. After his last effort with Richard Thornburgh who was vying for the US Senate failed in November 1991, Ailes announced that he would withdraw from politics, but returned in 1992 to help Bush win his re-election against Bill Clinton.

Although salary terms were not made public, reports emerged that in the 2012 fiscal year he was paid $21 million, inclusive of the bonuses, increasing his net worth significantly. In addition to chairing and heading the Fox TV Stations, he also chairs Fox Business Network, My Network TV and Twentieth Television.
