Charles Ergen net worth: Charles Ergen is one of the founders and chairman of EchoStar Communications Corporation who has a net worth of $14 billion. EchoStar Communications Corporation is the parent company of the well known Dish Network and has million of subscribers. Originally from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, he is the son of a nuclear physicist, so needless to say brains ran in the family. He believed he was so smart, in fact, that he attempted card counting and was even thrown out of a casino in Vegas… I suppose he wasn't as successful at card counting as he was at founding companies. Dish Network was started in the 1980's, targeting rural area houses, where cable wasn't as easily accesible. Remember seeing huge dishes in front of peoples houses in random rural places like Colorado? Yeh, that was him. The dishes got smaller, but his net worth got bigger. I think they call that the inverse dish size to net worth rule.
