The Net Worth of Jose Antonio Baston
How rich is Jose Antonio Baston? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $12 million, mostly earned through a successful career in business, having been active in his endeavors since the 1990s. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Years and CareerVery little information is known about Jose Antonio’s childhood or how he came to have business aspirations, but he developed an interest in business and the media in particular, which eventually led him to establish success and net worth. He eventually joined the board of the Mexican mass media company Televisa, which is known as the largest in Hispanic America and the Spanish speaking world. The company has ties to numerous major international businesses.
Televisa works with Univision in the US to help air its programming, and the two have an exclusive contract. During the time he entered the company, it was the era of Emilio Azcarraga Jean – the company at this time took control of numerous aspects of the industry, such as programming, cable television, radio production, sports teams, business promotion and film distribution. The strong influence of the company has allowed it to help shape opinions in the country. His work with the company has helped elevate his net worth significantly, and his skills subsequently lead to him becoming the president of the company in 2017. He is the first leader who is not a member of the Azcarraga family, as the board found a need to have new leadership due to the massive decline in Televisa’s viewership, caused by the popularity of video streaming services, and companies such as Netflix.
In 1995, it is known that Baston married actress Natalia Esperon who also worked as a model. She’s been seen in several Mexican films and television shows from the 1990s up to the 2000s, and won a few awards, The couple would go on to have three children including twins, however, one of the twins died a few days after birth which would rock their relationship, and the two eventually divorced in 2005.
Baston would then meet Eva Longoria through mutual friends in 2013, but they didn’t really hit it off until meeting again six months later. Eva is best known for her portrayal of Gabrielle Solis in the television series “Desperate Housewives”, which ran from 2004 to 2012 and for which she received numerous nominations. She is considered as one of the most beautiful women in the world by several publications, and holds modelling contracts with several companies including L’Oreal, Hanes, and New York & Co.
Relationship and Marriage to Eva LongoriaOne of the things that helped the two connect is the fact that Jose Antonio didn’t know a thing about “Desperate Housewives”, which Longoria found refreshing. The two would date for two years before he proposed to her during a romantic trip to Dubai. According to reports, he planned for six months and while details of the proposal haven’t been shown, Longoria commented that he raised the bar for men everywhere, on the show “CONAN”. Baston and Longoria would have a child in early 2018.
Longoria has also been married before, to professional basketball player Tony Parker of the National Basketball Association (NBA) team, the San Antonio Spurs, for four years before divorcing due to irreconcilable differences. According to reports, she discovered that Parker was developing another relationship.
Is Jose Antonio Baston on Social Media?
One of the reasons there is very little information about Baston is the fact that he doesn’t have any online presence, on accounts associated with Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. There are numerous pictures of him online, as he often appears with his wife in events and has been photographed by paparazzi when they are out. However, Jose is involved largely anonymously in philanthropic work. His wife on the other hand is very active on social media as is typical with actresses – she has an Instagram account which shows some of her daily endeavors, recently posting about the successful birth of their child. She also promotes some of her recent projects and endeavors as can be seen on her Facebook page. Her social media pages often share the same type of content.
