Best-selling author and award-winning journalist Carole Radziwill grew up in upstate New York. She moved to New York City to attend college, earning a B.A. at Hunter College and a masters degree at New York University. In 1988, she landed an internship at ABC News. It was the start of a long and rewarding career. Carole’s work with Peter Jennings' documentary unit and the newsmagazine shows Primetime Live and 20/20 garnered her three Emmy Awards, a Robert F. Kennedy Humanitarian Award, and a GLAAD Award. Carole has traveled all over the world for her work, reporting on stories from places like Cambodia, India, and the Middle East. She was assigned to Israel in 1991 to cover the first Gulf War. In 2001, during the Afghanistan War, she spent a month embedded in the 101st Airborne Division in Kandahar. While there, she filmed for the ABC docuseries Profiles From the Front Line. In 2003, Carole left ABC News to write her first book, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love. It is a moving account of her life, her marriage to fellow ABC News producer Anthony Radziwill, and their heartbreaking battle with cancer. What Remains spent more than 20 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List and was nominated for the Books for a Better Life Award. Carole is a contributor to Glamour magazine and Porter magazine. Her first novel, The Widow's Guide to Sex & Dating, was published in February 2014. She is at work on her next book, which will be a collection of essays on topics ranging from love to war to the drama of reality.
