Dorothy Mae Kilgallen (July 3, 1913 – November 8, 1965) was an American journalist and television game show panelist. After spending two semesters at the College of New Rochelle, she started her career shortly before her 18th birthday as a reporter for the Hearst Corporation’s New York Evening Journal. In 1938, she began her newspaper column “The Voice of Broadway”, which eventually was syndicated to more than 140 papers. In 1950, she became a regular panelist on the television game show What’s My Line?, continuing in the role until her death.
Kilgallen’s columns featured mostly show business news and gossip, but 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.
