Liz Dribben, Veteran CBS Radio Producer, Dies

Liz Dribben was a pioneering journalist who had ties to New York City. After working at a TV station in her hometown of Buffalo, Dribben made the move to the Big Apple in 1969.

Eventually, she was hired by CBS News for their radio division, where she would spend the next 21 years. Dribben was a senior producer and writer, working closely with some of the network’s biggest names—Ed Bradley, Charles Osgood, Dan Rather, and Mike Wallace among them.

Dribben left CBS in 1993 but kept a busy schedule with numerous jobs, including as a talk show host at WEVD-AM (now 1050 WEPN). She also taught radio reporting at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

The Buffalo News reports Dribben died yesterday in a Manhattan nursing home after a long illness. She was 73.
