Who Inherited Merv Griffin’s Fortune?

If you’re curious about Merv Griffin’s fortune, you’ve come to the right place. This article explains how the late TV personality ended up in this position. First, let’s look at his family background. Merv Griffin, the father of “The Price is Right” host Alex Trebek, was born in Kentucky in 1923. His father, Roger King, was a state legislator. His family fortune came from a variety of ventures, including a gambling empire.

As an adult, Griffin’s estate was estimated at $50 million before estate taxes and debts, and at least $136 million after those. His estate is estimated to be worth over $1 billion, but it’s unclear what percentage of that value went to his son, Tony Griffin. According to court documents, Tony Griffin is entitled to $2 million a year minimum, plus 60% of the liquidated estate. While this sum might seem large, it may not be enough to settle the pending legal issues.

Among Merv Griffin’s children, Victor Astor inherited his father’s fortune. Merv Griffin’s fortune was passed on to his children and grandchildren. His children inherited Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. His company, Merv Griffin Enterprises, later became Sony Pictures Television, which has its own spinoff, Columbia TriStar Television. He had a long list of other interests, including Broadway and film.
