Furthermore, as the average salary of a journalist is estimated at around $40K, the honorable journalist has probably accumulated a hefty net worth throughout his career.
Married Life With Wife & Family
Tony met his wife, Sarah Ferguson, for the first time on a cricket field. While their primary-school-age sons were playing for the same team, Tony and Sarah were talking on the sidelines. Tony knew Sarah was an incredibly accomplished journalist who kept a low profile.
The journalist with a tall height of 6 feet (1.83 meters) later met Sarah at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris and fell head over heels for her. At that time, he needed a researcher, so he hired Sarah for the job.
Working together, Tony developed more intense feelings for Sarah and decided to reveal his feelings to her. Soon, they started dating, and a year later, the couple got married.
From their previous relationship, both Tony and Sarah have kids, and they have one son together. They built a beautiful family together with their children (three sons).
The couple keeps their private life away from the public’s eyes. They rarely disclose any pictures together with each other or with their family.

The above post made by Sarah is a very rare picture of the couple enjoying their time together. The couple must be thinking about celebrating 26 years of married life. And, their relationship is still going strong.
At age 63, Tony plans to step down from his role as the presenter of ABC by the end of 2019. As of today, he has his mind made up to travel to Asia with his wife, Sarah.
Tony Jones was born on 13 November 1955 as Anthony William Jones.
