Famous for
Elizabeth Vargas was born September 6, 1962, in Paterson, New Jersey. However, she didn't stay there long. The daughter of a U.S. Army colonel, she spent most of her childhood being shuttled from one international base to another, including stops in Stuttgard, Frankfurt, Brussels, Okinawa, Indiana, Kansas, and California. With so many changes of address, the only constant Elizabeth had in her life was her family. "Family is so important in so many Latin cultures," she says. "My father was relentless about that."

When it came time to choose a university, Elizabeth packed up her suitcase yet again and traveled to the University of Missouri, where she majored in journalism. When she wasn't hitting the books, Elizabeth was covering the day's breaking stories as an anchorwoman for the school's television station, KOMU-TV.
