Biographical Note

Award-winning columnist Liz Smith was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1923. She attended the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Journalism, where she worked for The Daily Texan student newspaper and graduated in 1949. After moving to New York City, she worked as a producer for Mike Wallace on CBS Radio and as a news producer for NBC-TV. In the 1960s, she was entertainment editor for Cosmopolitan magazine and for Sports Illustrated. Smith began writing her self-titled gossip column for the New York Daily News in 1976, and three years later she started an eleven-year stint on Live at Five, a celebrity news show on WNBC in NYC. She won an Emmy award for her reporting from the battleship Intrepid on the 40th anniversary of World War II. In 1991, Smith moved her column to Newsday, leaving four years later for the New York Post. Her column was discontinued in 2009, but Smith continued to write online for "wowOwow.com: Women on the Web", a website focusing on women’s issues which she co-founded with The Women on the Net, Inc., in 2008. The site was later acquired and became "purewow.com". Smith's memoir, Natural Blonde, was a New York Times bestseller.

In addition, Smith continues to contribute to the New York Social Diary, Huffington Post, and other web publications. She also regularly contributes to Fox News Entertainment.
