Dan Le Batard Relationship With Girlfriend / Wife
Dan Le is yet to change the tag of his girlfriend to a wife. He first met his girlfriend, Valerie Scheide, around 2017 at 27 Restaurant in Miami Beach.
When Dan went to the restaurant for celebrating his parents' 49th wedding anniversary, Valerie was working as a hostess there.
Dan fell for her at the very first sight; however, he was scared to approach her. Meanwhile, keeping his fear aside, he kept his smartphone in his open palm and boldly asked, "I'd like you to put your number in here. I'd like to take you out."
After that, Dan and Valerie started talking and eventually started sharing mutual feelings towards each other. Soon, they started dating and proudly called each other as theirs.
One day, during a safari vacation in Kenya, Dan proposed to Valerie with an engagement ring, which she happily accepted.
Not only Dan and Valerie are waiting to exchange their I do's, but even their fans are eagerly waiting for them to get hitched.

Before Valerie, Dan previously dated Heat TV host Jill Martin, but before their relationship took off, Jill broke up with him because she felt that he was overweight.
His Salary & Net Worth
Dan began his first pay job tossing newspapers onto front lawns, riding a bicycle. Later, at the age of nineteen, he earned his first money from writing for the River Cities Gazette, a community weekly.
After that, Dan decided to make writing his career, but his father Gonzalo Le Batard wanted him to be an engineer, but Dan was determined to study journalism.
As of now, Dan's determination has worked out great for him. He serves as a frequent fill-in host on ESPN's Pardon The Interruption, and co-hosts a daily sports-radio show in Miami featuring "a cornucopia of silly songs, long-winded interviews, blatant debauchery, and all-around tomfoolery."
Moreover, Dan has made a net worth of $1 million from his career. He has not unveiled the amount he earns, but the host undoubtedly makes more than the average salary of an ESPN sportswriter that ranges from $54K to $66K.
Dan Le was born on 16 December 1968 to his immigrant parents, Gonzalo Le Batard and Lourdes Le Batard.
He spent his childhood in Central Islip, New York with his artist brother, David Le Batard. Dan might only have one sibling brother, but if he does have other siblings, their existence is out of the media's reach.
For Dan's educational qualification, he graduated from the University of Miami in 1990.
