Lynda Lopez Net Worth: How Rich Is Jennifer Lopez Younger Sister?
Lynda Lopez, a well-known American journalist and radio broadcaster, has an estimated net worth of $2 million. She accumulated her net worth through her professional work as a journalist, radio broadcaster, news anchor, and TV host.
Not to forget, she also rakes in hundreds of thousands of dollars from the profits generated by Nuyorican Productions, where she is a co-founder together with her older sister, Jennifer Lopez.
The younger sister of Jennifer Lopez, Lynda established herself as a millionaire from her involvement in radio broadcasting, Djing, TV hosting, News anchoring, and collaboration on other projects. Here is the detail of how she made her million-dollar fortune.
Lynda Lopez has worked with various radio stations since the early 2000s. She started her radio broadcasting career at WBAB and WLIR on Long Island. During the late 90s and early 200s, she also worked as a VH1 VJ.
From 2000 to 2002, she worked at WPIX, a virtual and VHF digital channel, before spending three years at WCBS, the flagship station of the CBS television network in New York City.
In 2007, Lynda had a short stint at WNYW, Channel 5, the flagship station of the Fox Television Network, with branches in New York and New Jersey. In the 2000s, she also worked at WWOR-TV, the flagship station of the MyNetworkTV programming service, licensed to Secaucus, New Jersey.
Lynda spent the majority of her career at WCBS NewsRadio 880, where she worked from 2009 to 2016 as an anchor and correspondent. While she did leave briefly to anchor ABC Radio’s GMA After Hours, she joined the station once again as the midday news anchor in 2020, repacing news anchor Pat Farnack. In February 2020, though, she resigned from WCBS 880 to pursue a new career.
In the early 2000s, Lynda transitioned to the screen as an entertainment correspondent for WPIX, eventually earning an Emmy Award for her work there in 2001. Over the next few years, she focused more on television, hosting shows for the Style Network and E!, as well as local news outlets WNBC-TV and WNJU.
In late 2003, Lynda joined WCBS-TV as a part-time correspondent. In August 2004, she was appointed as the anchor of WCBS’ weekend morning show. But she left her job at WCBS-TV in June 2006.
On July 29, 2006, Lynda made her debut as a co-anchor with Mike Gilliam on the WWOR-TV show ‘My 9 Weekend News at 10.’ She then moved to WNYW-TV’s ‘Good Day New York’ in 2007. She was then made anchor of ‘Fox 5 Live’ for the 11 AM timeslot, where she was joined by Reid Lamberty.

When Lynda was not on screen or on the airwaves, she contributed to a number of magazines, intermittently writing columns and articles for Latina Magazine, Glamour, and Glam Belleza Latina. Her authorial efforts really came to a head in 2020 as she penned the biography AOC, documenting the life and career of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as the significance of their shared Puerto Rican heritage.
On a number of occasions, Lynda has collaborated with her sister, Jennifer, on projects. In 2014, the two sisters co-produced a documentary named ‘Los Jets.’ The following year, Lynda served as the co-producer of her sister’s special TV concert ‘Neighborhood Sessions: Jennifer Lopez’.
In 2019, Lynda worked as an executive assistant on her sister’s hit film Hustlers. The two sisters also shared the screen in the 2020 documentary short Draw With Me.
Lynda was also cast in a brief role of journalist for the smash hit film Apocalypse of Ice.
Lynda and Jennifer are also co-founders of Nuyorican Productions. Initially, the production company was co-founded with Jennifer’s manager Benny Medina.
Nuyorican Productions has produced South Beach (a primetime television drama), El Cantante (a film in which Jennifer starred alongside then-husband Marc Anthony), Como Ama una Mujer (the Univision miniseries), Brethren, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, and The Fosters.
In 2021, Netflix signed a multi-year first-look deal with the company. There’s no denying that Lynda benefits from the production company, and with the deal with Netflix, the company might generate a huge profit.
