Elizabeth Vargas Biography

Elizabeth Vargas has cut out her own niche in the world of broadcast journalism as a news correspondent for such top-rated shows as 20/20 and PrimeTime Live. Alongside such news veterans as Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer, Vargas earned a reputation as a dynamic journalist who is more than able to handle the stress of a live news broadcast. As a woman at the top of her field, she has faithfully reported the news to millions of Americans.

While at Dateline, Vargas reported on a wide range of issues, including breast cancer research, PETA's (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) war against fur and the mysterious life and death of billionaire socialite Doris Duke. She also reported a one-hour story on a controversial drunk-driving case in New Mexico. Her last day at ABC News was in May 2018, and she went on to start her first investigative documentary series on A&E, "Cults & Extreme Belief."

During her tenure at NBC, she served as substitute co-anchor and news anchor for NBC News' Today show and as a substitute anchor for the weekend editions of NBC Nightly News. Vargas joined NBC News in 1993 as a correspondent for the NBC newsmagazine, Now with Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric.

Prior to joining NBC News, Vargas spent four years as a reporter and anchor for WBBM-TV, the CBS affiliate in Chicago. From 1986-1989, she was the lead reporter for KTVK-TV, the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. Earlier, she worked as a reporter-anchor for KTVN-TV, the CBS affiliate in Reno, Nevada.

Vargas graduated with a Bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, where she began her broadcasting career as a reporter-anchor for KOMU-TV.
