Who is Robert Costa from “Washington Post”?
Born on the 14th of October 1985 in Richmond, Virginia USA, Robert Costa is a 32-year-old Caucasian journalist, perhaps best known for his reports and analyses for The Washington Post, NBC News and MSNBC. He has had a number of other positions across various news companies throughout his career, having been active in the sometimes lucrative journalism business since 2010.
Early Life and Education
Robert was born into a family of legal practitioners, to his father Thomas and mother Anne-Dillon. He actually grew up with his three siblings in Lower Makefield Township of Bucks County in Pennsylvania, to where his family moved very early in his childhood. Costa attended Pennsbury High School, from where he matriculated in 2004. It looks like he took an interest in what he does now very early, as he started conducting interviews for the Bucks County Courier Times while he was still in high school, earning around $50 per article. He used this status to invite various stars to perform at his educational institution, including Maroon 5, John Mayer and Eve 6. Meanwhile, he was also covering local professional sports for the student TV station PHS-TV. From 2004 to 2008, Robert studied at the University of Notre Dame, from where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American studies. Subsequently, he also earned a Master’s degree in politics from the University of Cambridge in 2009.
CareerAlthough he was already involved in the media in more than one way, including his previous position at the Cambridge Union debating society, his first official experience as a journalist came in 2010, when he obtained the position of a Robert L. Bartley Fellow in “The Wall Street Journal”. In the same year, he obtained his first full-time job as a reporter for “National Review”, a semi-monthly magazine that focuses on social, cultural and political affairs. In 2012, he earned the promotion that placed him in the position of Washington editor. Meanwhile, he was also making contributions to both CNBC and MSNBC. During the 2013 US federal government shutdown, Robert filed impressive reports throughout the event, which earned him the title of “The Golden Boy of the Government Shutdown.” Thanks to the massive rise in his popularity that he experienced, he was able to obtain a better position, specifically at The Washington Post, meanwhile also becoming a political analyst for MSNBC and NBC. Subsequently, Robert also covered the most recent presidential campaign, thus gaining another nickname – “Trump Whisperer” – due to the vast number of interviews that he conducted with the current US president. Ultimately, he was named the permanent moderator of “Washington Week”, which is his current position.
When it comes to Robert’s romantic involvements, even though he is now a celebrity, the media is very much in the dark on this matter. There have been certain allegations that he is long since married with children, although the star himself has neither admitted nor refuted these claims. Until disclosed by Robert himself, no further information can be given about this part of his life.
Although Robert was never super slim, a significant amount of weight was visible on his face for a substantial amount of time. However, it seems that Robert has recently managed to reduce his body weight, though it is unknown through what measures. Some fans speculate that he dieted without exercising, while some claim the opposite; the star himself hasn’t said much on this matter, and until he does, the rumors don’t hold much credibility.
What is Robert Costa’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Robert Costa is, as of early 2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Robert’s accumulated wealth is close to $45 million, largely aided by his numerous successes in the news industry, the greatest contribution coming from his long-term presence on MSNBC and NBC. As his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the experienced journalist, there is currently no information regarding his vital statistics, including his height and body weight. His hair color is light brown and his eyes are dark brown, while his foot size also remains undisclosed to this day.

Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active journalists to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the media companies they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. Robert himself seems to be a regular subscriber of this trend, as he is present on a a few social media networks, although if he has a Facebook account, it isn’t accessible to the general public, while his Twitter account boasts almost 400,000 followers, and his Instagram account is followed by just over 4,000+ fans at the moment.
