Vin Di Bona is a Bona-fied Hollywood Television producer with a net worth of $30 Million. From Rhode Island, he started his career in the entertainment industry as a singer, with the name Johnny Lindy, strangely enough. After having just marginal success, he decided to turn his attention to producing. A move that has proven to be very lucrative for him. He started producing TV specials in 1976 and hasn't slowed down since. Some of his most memorable productions took place in the 80's and 90's. Some of his most well known productions are, "MacGyver" and "Entertainment Tonight" and "America's Funniest Home Videos." Funniest Home Videos, which could be argued as being the foundation of shows like Tosh.O and to a smaller degree YouTube. That show is also one of the longest running, having not been taken off the air since 1989 (22 years so far). It has since lead to two spin-offs and of course more cash in his pocket. If you were a child of the 80's you may have seen his cheesy "Vin Di Bona Productions" graphic at the end of any of his productions. If you remember, that usually happened right after a dangerously unfunny segment by Bob Saget conversing with his "mother" on Funniest Home Videos...
Vincent John "Vin" Di Bona (born 1944) is a television producer for many American television shows such as America's Funniest People, MacGyver and Entertainment Tonight as well as America's Funniest Home Videos. He runs an eponymous production company called Vin Di Bona Productions. In 2010 Di Bona launched a second shingle, FishBowl Worldwide Media, an independent production company developing properties for film, television, digital platforms and brands.

A native of Cranston, Rhode Island, Di Bona began his career in the entertainment industry as a singer, under the stage name Johnny Lindy (the last name was taken from the Cranston area restaurant owned by his parents that Di Bona worked at as a pre-teen); releasing two records by the age of 16, which became hits regionally. However Di Bona turned his aspirations to making film and television in 1962, following the major worldwide success of The Beatles, quoted in a 1990 interview as saying "Guys who sang romantic ballads were up a creek without a paddle. So I adapted."
He received an education at Emerson College in Boston, where he served as manager of WECB, the campus radio station. Di Bona met his first wife Gina, who serves as a production consultant on many of his series including America's Funniest Home Videos and with whom they have a daughter, Cara, while attending Emerson College. After graduating from Emerson in 1966 and earning up a master's degree of fine arts in film at UCLA, he worked for nine years at Boston's then-NBC affiliate WBZ-TV (channel 4; now a CBS-owned station). After he left WBZ-TV, Vin, his wife and daughter moved to Los Angeles, Di Bona did not find a job for about eight months, until he became employed at CBS directing and producing documentaries for the network, which earned him four Emmys and a Peabody Award.
Di Bona is considered one of the pioneers of reality TV, thanks to Battle of the Network Stars, which Di Bona produced in 1976. By the 1980s, Di Bona became a prod
