Leyna Nguyen Salary

Leyna Nguyen is a Vietnamese-American TV anchor who moved to the United States in 1975 as a refugee. She attended Webster University in St. Louis to obtain her degree in Mass Communication. Since then she has done many amazing things such as being the first newscaster to anchor at two different news station within the same market, anchored and newscast for an NBC affiliated station, and even made several appearances in movies and television shows. She has gained a large following as a news anchor and newscaster, and is considered to be the best looking anchorwoman in the United States.

Personal Life

Outside of work, Leyna Nguyen is a wife and mother of two children. She has been happily married since 2005 and she has reportedly told people that her husband has been nothing but caring and supportive of her. Leyna has also been crowned “Miss Asia” and been awarded with 3 Emmy awards for her work. With all the activities that her work requires as well as an active personal life, she still has the time to enjoy many of her favorite hobbies including cooking, paragliding, racing, music, and martial arts.

Leyna Nguyen Salary

Even though her salary is unknown to anyone except her, her family, and her work, Leyna has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars and is likely to be paid around $175,000 a year, which is the average salary of a news anchor and newscaster. However it is hard to say since she has also performed in many movies and television shows as a reporter, news anchor, and many other news channel personnel. You can see her on two of the California news stations, KCAL and KCBS-TV, on some episodes of NCIS, Stalker, 90210, and Dexter. She has even landed some rather large movie appearances such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Eagle Eye, and XXX: State of the Union, Garfield, Austin Powers in Goldmember, and several others.


While nobody really knows what Leyna Nguyen’s yearly salary is, a net worth of $500,000 dollars is nothing to scoff at. She has proven herself to be incredibly talented and even has the awards to show that her talent is far beyond her job as a reporter and anchorwoman. I am also fairly certain that due to working at two different channels while possessing 3 Emmy Awards can make salary determination a bit more difficult.
