Brit Hume was brought up by his father, George Graham Hume, and his mother, Virginia Powell. He attended St. Albans School, after which he enrolled at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville to study English, and graduated in 1965.

Brit’s professional career began soon after his college graduation, firstly finding a job with The Hartford Times Company. After a while he was hired by the United Press International, and eventually by the Evening Sun newspapers. In the 1970s he worked as correspondent for Jack Anderson, until 1973, with Brit`s name becoming more known in journalist circles, and that year he was hired by MORE magazine as its Washington editor. However, what was more important that year, he was hired by ABC news as a consultant. He spent three years in that position, after which he was promoted to a position of correspondent, and as such he focused on the US Senate for the next 11 years.

In 1989 he became the ABC’s main White House correspondent, reporting on Presidents Bush and later Clinton. However, in 1996 he left ABC and joined Fox News, for which he worked until his retirement in 2008. In 1998 he started his own show, entitled “Special Report With Brit Hume”, which ran for the next 10 years, considerably increasing Brit’s popularity, but also his net worth.

Brit has also authored several books, including “Death And The Mines – Rebellion And Murder In The United Mine Workers” (1971), and “Inside Story” (1974), which also contributed to the overall size of his net worth.

Thanks to his successful career, Brit received numerous prestigious awards, including Emmy Award for coverage of the Gulf War in 1991, and American Journalism “Best in the Business” award twice for his White House coverage. Furthermore, he received the Sol Taishoff Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalist in 2003.
