In an interview with WABC TV, Liz, 86, commented that Friday "will be the first time in 33 years that there hasn't been a Liz Smith column in a New York paper." She added, "That hurts my heart. I would hate to see another newspaper fail. When I came to New York, there were nine newspapers. I've worked for seven of them. They just disappear out from under you," she said.
For those of you looking to get your Liz Smith fix, as of next week, her work will still appear on wowOwow.com, an online community organized and run by women.
