She is North America's only black billionaire and the most influential woman in the world. The TV personality was born into poverty to a teenage single mother in rural Mississippi, and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood, although it is said she experienced extreme hardship during her childhood. She later got a job in a radio station while in high school, co-anchoring the evening news at the age of 19. Consequently, she got transferred to the daytime-talk-show arena, and boosted the ratings of a local Chicago talk show, launching them to the top spot. She eventually launched her own production company, and became internationally syndicated. She now  has a net worth of $2.9 billion and earns an annual salary of $315 million.
