Chris Hansen Net Worth
Chris Hansen net worth and salary: Chris Hansen is an American news anchor and television host who has a net worth of $10 thousand. Chris Hansen is probably best known for his work on the Dateline NBC specials entitled To Catch A Predator. But this net worth wasn't accumulated simply from catching would-be child predators with their pants down. His career as a reporter began at the Lansing, Michigan NBC affiliate while he was still a student at the University of Michigan. From there, he moved on to the Tampa, Florida station WFLA, also an NBC affiliate. He continued to report for local organizations like TV and radio stations, as well as newspapers in Detroit until 1993, when he got his first national gig as a correspondent for Now with Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric. This job served as a stepping stone to the job that Hansen is most famous for today, a correspondent for Dateline NBC. While there, he's done notable reporting on stories like the Oklahoma City bombing, the Columbine tragedy, and more. But Hansen is most famous for his work on the Dateline NBC segment To Catch a Predator, which features Hanson exposing attempted internet predators through the use of hidden cameras and the cooperation of local law enforcement. The segment became a big pop culture phenomenon, and continues to be seen in re-runs today. In August 2016 Chris began hosting a syndicated news program called Crime Watch Daily.
