Bill Kurtis net worth: Bill Kurtis is an American journalist, producer, narrator, and news anchor who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Bill Kurtis, also known as William Horton Kuretich, was born in Pensacola, Florida, but lived everywhere due to his father being in the military. When he was in his teens, Bill Kurtis' family finally settled in Independence, Kansas. He went on work for a local radio station, and then graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Journalism. He then earned his law degree from the Washburn University School of Law. He decided to focus on a career in law, but fate stepped in. He filled in for a friend at WIBW-TV in Kansas, the night a major tornado hit Topeka. He and the crew remained on-air for 24 hours, as they were the only station not knocked out by the storm. He was subsequently hired by WBBM-TV in Chicago, a CBS affiliate. Since then, he has gone on to an illustrious career in broadcasting. He has also written numerous books, and founded an organic beef company. He has won two Peabody Awards and multiple Emmy Awards.
Bill Kurtis (born William Horton Kuretich; September 21, 1940) is an American television journalist, producer, narrator, and news anchor. He is also the current host of A&E crime and news documentary shows, including Investigative Reports, American Justice, and Cold Case Files. Previously, he anchored CBS Morning News, and was the longtime anchor at WBBM-TV, the CBS owned-and-operated TV station in Chicago.
Kurtis was born in Pensacola, Florida, to Wilma Mary Horton (1911???2002) and William A. Kuretich (Croatian: Kureti??), of Croatian origin (1914-2001), a U.S. Marine Corps brigadier general and decorated veteran of World War II. His father???s military career included extensive travel for his family. Upon his retirement, the family settled in Independence, Kansas.
At age 16, Kurtis began working as an announcer for KIND-AM, a radio station in Independence. He graduated from Independence High School in 1958, the University of Kansas with a B.S. in Journalism in 1962 and he earned a Juris Doctor degree from Washburn University School of Law in 1966. While in law school he worked part-time at WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kansas. After passing the Kansas Bar examination and accepting a job with a Wichita law firm, Kurtis discussed his options with Harry Colmery and Bob McClure of Colmery and Russell and decided to pursue a career in law.
On the evening of June 8, 1966, Kurtis left a Bar review class at Washburn to fill in for a friend at WIBW-TV. He would anchor the 6:00 news. Severe weather was approaching Topeka so Kurtis stayed to update some weather reports. At 7:00 p.m. while on the air, a tornado was sighted by WIBW cameraman Ed Rutherford southwest of the city. Within 15 seconds another sighting came in: ???it???s wiped out an apartment complex???. Kurtis's warning to ???For God???s sake, take cover??? became synonymous with the 1966 Topeka tornado that left 16 dead and injured hundreds more"The Topeka Tornado - June 8, 1966". 31-Aug-2010.
