Greg Gutfeld was born on September 12, 1964, in San Mateo, California, to Gregory Gutfeld and Barbara Gutfeld. He grew up in a Roman Catholic family with his mother Jacqueline, father Alfred, and three sisters, Christine, Jeanne, and Leslie, who were all his role models. Greg received his high school diploma from Junipero Serra High School and his bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California, Berkeley in 1987.

Gutfeld is best recognised for his work as a host of “The Greg Gutfeld Show” on Fox News. Aside from that, Greg has published nine novels, four of which have been named “New York Times” Best Sellers.
Greg Gutfeld receives a salary of $7 million per year from Fox News.
Following graduation from college, Gutfeld started working as an intern at the conservative journal “The American Spectator,” where he eventually became a staff writer for the magazine “Prevention.” Greg eventually relocated to Emmaus, Pennsylvania, where he worked as an editor for a number of Rodale Publishing publications.
“Men’s Health” magazine hired him to write for them in 1995, and he rose to the position of editor-in-chief in 1999, but he was fired the following year.
Following his departure from “Stuff,” Gutfeld became the magazine’s editor-in-chief, and the publication’s circulation climbed to 1.2 million, from 750,000 at the time.
Greg, on the other hand, was sacked after a 2003 prank in which he dispatched dwarfs to the Magazine Publishers of America convention with the instruction that they should be noisy and unpleasant.
Following his expulsion from “Stuff,” Gutfeld was recruited by Dennis Publishing, where he worked as their head of “brain development” and editor of “Maxim U.K.” from 2004 to 2006. His contract with the company was not extended since the magazine’s readership had declined during that time period.
Greg was a contributor to “The Huffington Post” from 2005 to 2008, where he used sarcasm to poke fun at colleagues such as Deepak Chopra and Arianna Huffington, among others. “Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld” is a late-night programme on the Fox News Channel that Gutfeld has hosted since 2007.
In 2011, Gutfeld joined the Fox News Channel’s “The Five” as a co-host and panellist, and he has since been a regular on the show.
Greg Gutfeld departed “Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld” in February 2015 and started presenting “The Greg Gutfeld Show” (also on Fox News) a few months later, which he has been doing since.
He published his first book, “The Scorecard: The Official Point System for Keeping Score in the Relationship Game,” in 1997. Gutfeld is the author of many books. “The Scorecard at Work: The Official Point System for Keeping Score on the Job” was published two years later. He then published “Lessons from the Land of Pork Scratchings” (2008), “The Bible of Unspeakable Truths” (2010), “The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage” (2012), “Not Cool: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You” (2014), “How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persu (2018).
He is now working on his next book, “The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help,” which will be released on July 28, 2020.
According to Nielsen data, The Greg Gutfeld Show averaged 2.862 million total viewers over four episodes in May 2020, with the most recent episode airing in April 2020. That was the level at which he had defeated Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel, among others.
It should be noted that Greg’s programme only aired once a week, as opposed to the other hosts’ shows, which aired four times weekly. One may argue that since a weekly programme is more unusual, it would automatically get larger viewership as a result. Nonetheless, it was a remarkable achievement. Greg’s performance was so outstanding that President Donald Trump sent him an uninvited tweet in which he said
“Wow! Congratulations to Greg Gutfeld, a former Trump detractor who has returned to his former political home. His ratings substantially outperformed those of no-talent Stephen Colberg, lovely man Jimmy Fallon, and wacky ‘last placer’ Jimmy Kimmel, among others. Greg created his programme from the ground up, and he did an excellent job in the process.”
Observations on Personal Life
Greg and Elena Moussa were married in December 2014, after dating for five months. Elena, a former model from Russia, met Gutfeld in London, where she was working as a photo editor for “Maxim Russia” and he was working for “Maxim U.K.” They became friends and eventually married.
Despite the fact that Greg was raised as a Roman Catholic, he has declared himself a “agnostic atheist.” As Gutfeld has noted, he was raised as a conservative in college but subsequently became a libertarian after moving to California.
