What Is Huw Edwards' Net Worth In 2022?

What Is Huw Edwards' Net Worth In 2022?

Huw Edwards, 60, is a presenter, journalist, and newsreader who has worked for the BBC for nearly 40 years. He has become a household name in the UK following his role as main host of the BBC's coverage of the 2019 general election and Prince Phillip's funeral in April 2021.

What Is Huw Edwards Net Worth In 2022?

Huw Edwards has an estimated a net worth of $3 million (£2.4 million), according to Idolnetworth. Edwards is known as one of the BBC's highest earners, with a salary of £429,999 per year. The presenter also does work outside of the BBC, last year he raked in nearly £10,000 for one event alone.

He works as awards host for Business Matters, a magazine for entrepreneurs, Bauer Media, UMAL, and the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment. There is no doubt that he is in high demand.


Joining the BBC in 1984, Edwards has certainly made his way up the rankings. He has done many roles at the national broadcaster, most notably being the BBC’s chief presenter on News at One, Six and Ten.

Edwards bravely revealed in a S4C Welsh documentary, Huw Edwards yn 60, and an interview with Men’s Health UK, that he has been battling depression since 2002. He stated that many days his condition causes him to struggle to get out of bed and makes him dread going to work.

The presenter said he was met with ‘deep-freeze silence’ from the BBC after confessing his mental state, and he was later told by a colleague that ‘the BBC doesn’t want people to think there’s a nutter reading the 10 o’clock news’ – a comment which confirms the stigma surrounding mental health. However, despite such attitudes, Edwards has powered through the harder days and never fails to deliver a sharp and concise news story.  

Edwards is leading the BBC’s coverage of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations and there is no doubt he will be raking in more cash at the many presenting job opportunities flying his way this summer.
