Janet Weiner is the wife of the conservative author, political commentator, activist, and former radio host, Michael Alan Weiner, professionally known as Michael Savage.
Weiner's date of birth is cited as 1947, which makes her 74 years old as of 2021. She has not gone into details about her parents, siblings, and early life. Not much is known about her besides the fact that she was born in the US and holds American citizenship.
Her husband, Michael Alan Weiner, is currently 79 years old. He was born on March 31, 1942, in The Bronx, New York City, to parents Benjamin Weiner, antique shop owner, and Rae Weiner, both of whom were Jewish emigrants from Russia.
Weiner grew up in New York City with two siblings. His younger brother, Jerome Weiner, was born with developmental disabilities and couldn't hear or speak. He passed away in 1969. A year later, his father died of a heart attack.
The 79-year-old graduated from Jamaica High School in 1958. He then enrolled at Queens College and received a bachelor's degree in biology in 1963. Following graduation, Savage worked as a high school teacher in New York City for several years.
Weiner and Savage have been married for over five decades now. They met in the late 1960s and dated for some time before tying the knot in 1967. At the time Savage worked for famed psychedelic drug advocate Timothy Leary. He served as the keeper of the stone gatehouse on the Hitchcock Cattle Company estate in Millbrook, New York.
Together, they have two children: Russell Weiner, born in 1970, and Rebecca Lin Weiner Yops. Savage went on to earn a master's degree in botany from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 1970. He then obtained his Ph.D. in nutritional ethnomedicine from the University of California, Berkeley in 1978.
Prior to his relationship with Weiner, Savage was married to his first wife, Carol Ely from 1964 to 1967. He and Ely share no children. Meanwhile, Janet's personal life before marrying Savage is under wraps. The couple prefer to keep their family life private.
Forbes estimates Weiner's net worth at a staggering $155 million. The 74-year-old, who once operated an herb store, served as a chief financial officer of the energy drink company Rockstar founded by her son until selling it to PepsiCo for a whopping $3.85 billion in April 2020.
