Profile Bio Text
Katie Wagner (born May 11, 1964 in Los Angeles, California) is a television personality and Hollywood reporter. She was named after actress and family friend Katharine Hepburn. Her parents are actress Marion Marshall and veteran actor Robert Wagner. She has two older half-brothers, Josh Donen and Peter Donen, from her mother`s previous marriage. In 1970, when Katie was 7 years old, Robert and Marion divorced. When Katie was 8 years old, her father married Natalie Wood. Katie’s step-sister Natasha was less than 2 at the time. When Katie was 10, her half-sister Courtney was born.
At the age of 16, she moved in full time with her father, her stepmother Natalie Wood, Natasha, and Courtney. Tragedy struck in 1981 when Natalie drowned in a mysterious boating acciden. Katie was then 17.
Katie graduated from Beverly Hills High School in 1982 and attended Santa Barbara City College for a semester. After dropping out of college, she dabbled in modeling, which allowed her to live in Tokyo and London.
Katie received a break in 1987, when she and her father were featured on the TV show Born Famous. The show`s host asked her what she hoped to do for a living. Her answer? "I would like to do what you do." Katie`s first media job was for the Don Mischer special M & W on ABC, for which she interviewed Dan Aykroyd and his wife, Donna Dixon. This resulted in a two-and-a-half-year run at the Movietime Cable Network (Now E! Network). Katie went on to work at HBO, Cinemax, V, and MTV. At MTV, she guest-hosted from both coasts. She also co-hosted Awake on the Wildside, filled in for Chris Connelly on The Big Picture, and introduced videos at night.
As a side note, her first serious relationship was with rock star, Dweezil Zappa.
For two years, Katie Wagner co-hosted an international entertainment show called Hollywood Report with Richard Jobson on ITV in Great Britain. The show was seen in 11 countries. Katie then co-hosted 22 episodes of Live from the House of Blues on TBS. She joined Robin Leach for the final two seasons of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous as co host and contributing reporter. Then, Katie was asked to narrate and co-produce Intimate Portrait: Natalie Wood, about her late stepmother. With the cooperation of her family, Katie shared private details of Ms. Wood`s life for the first time.
In 1999, she began working for the TV Guide Channel. Her hosting duties included Music News, TV Talk, Family Do`s and Don’ts, and What`s On. In 2004, after 5 1/2 years, she left the TV Guide Channel to do her own show. Later that year, she played a news reporter on the Charmed episode, "Styx Feet Under" and was a guest star on the talk show, Good Day Live. In 2005, Katie was host of the WB show, The Starlet. On September 21, 2006, she gave birth to her first child, Riley John Wagner-Lewis.
