American journalist and television game show panelist. She started her career shortly before her 18th birthday as a reporter for the Hearst Corporation's New York Evening Journal after spending two semesters at the College of New Rochelle. In 1938, she began her newspaper column, "The Voice of Broadway", which eventually was syndicated to more than 146 papers. She became a regular panelist on the television game show What's My Line? in 1950.
Kilgallen's columns featured mostly show business news and gossip, but also ventured into other topics such as politics and organized crime. She wrote front-page articles on the Sam Sheppard trial and later the John F. Kennedy assassination.
On 8 November 1965, Kilgallen was found dead on the third floor of her five-story Manhattan townhouse. Her death was determined to be caused by a fatal combination of alcohol and barbiturates.
