This weekend Linda Ronstadt will be a Kennedy Center Honoree, heralded as the “defining voice of a generation.” But walk into her living room, as I recently did, and there is no sign it’s home to a rock star. Linda has no idea where her Grammies are, her National Medal of Arts is hidden under a bed, and she told me that listening to her old records can ruin her week. But that’s the thing about Linda, I think — she’s a singer first and always, not a fame-seeker. And she gave me some very good advice: “don’t leave the singing to the professionals.” So look out @katyturnbc. I’m bringing home a tune.
Tony earns a remarkable salary from CBS News but his actual earnings and net worth are yet to be revealed.
