As an award-winning anchor and correspondent, Elizabeth Vargas has traveled the world covering breaking news stories, reporting in-depth investigations, and conducting newsmaker interviews. Currently the host of A&E Investigates, Vargas was credited by New York Times for reinvigorating the newsmagazine format with her “intellectually brave” reporting.
With her signature candor and insight, Elizabeth Vargas gives audiences a behind-the-scenes look at today’s live news reporting and ever-evolving media. She shares her experiences breaking some of the biggest stories of the last several decades and reporting from the front lines around the world, including Hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq, the crisis in Beslan, Russia, and political crises in Washington. Vargas also bravely discusses how alcoholism and an anxiety disorder have affected her life and career, and why she chose to publicly share her struggle with the disease and her ongoing recovery.
