It's not every sportscaster who can host a quirky show on mini-golf and turn it into a success, but 'Holey Moley' host Joe Tessitore has the versatility to do just that. Tessitore has covered everything, from professional football, basketball, boxing to horse racing, and now of course mini golf on ABC's highly popular zany mini-golf show 'Holey Moley'.
Tessitore co-hosts 'Holey Moley' created and produced by NBA star Stephen Curry, along with comedian and actor Rob Riggle. Tessitore began his career covering boxing on Tuesday Night Fights and Friday Night Fights in 2002 and went on to appear on college football and college basketball broadcasts and even anchored horse racing for ABC and ESPN. Tessitore also served as the play-by-play announcer for Monday Night Football in 2018 and 2019. His witty commentary and distinct style has even earned a nickname from fans, who call it 'The Tess Effect'. But how much have his years of sportscasting actually earned him in the bank? Let's find out.
What is Joe Tessitore's net worth?
Tessitore's extremely versatile and successful career as a sportscaster is believed to have garnered him a net worth of approximately $5M.
Tessitore for his coverage of boxing, which he began his career with, was inducted into the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame. He has also been awarded with an Eclipse Award from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) for his Belmont Stakes telecast in 2009 and has received the prestigious Sam Taub Award for Broadcast Excellence from the Boxing Writers of America.
Tessitore is married to Rebecca Tessitore and they have two children John and Nicolina. While Tessitore has always kept his personal life extremely private, fans were in for a treat in October 2020 when Tessitore got to make a call on his son's play during the football game between Clemson and Boston College.
