Amy Dickinson


Amy Dickinson

Amy Dickinson writes the syndicated advice column "Ask Amy".

From her website at the "Chicago Tribune"::"In the tradition of the great personal advice columnists, Chicago Tribune's Dickinson is a plainspoken straight shooter who relates to readers of all ages. She answers personal questions by addressing issues from both her head and her heart. A solid reporter, Dickinson researches her topics to provide readers with informed opinions and answers."

:"The city of broad shoulders has a new shoulder to cry on: Amy Dickinson. Seven days a week, letter after letter, Dickinson applies an objective eye to reader problems large and small in "ASK AMY: Advice for the real world."

Dickinson succeeds the late Ann Landers (Eppie Lederer) as the "Chicago Tribune"'s signature advice columnist. "Chicago Tribune" editor Ann Marie Lipinski has said Dickinson brings :"a fresh and insightful approach to column writing, one that is grounded in common sense and solid reporting skills."

As an advice columnist, Amy draws on experiences, from her personal life and career as a journalist, to answer her reader's questions. Before joining the "Chicago Tribune", Dickinson (a distant relative of the poet Emily Dickinson) penned a column on family issues for "Time" and had been regularly featured on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered". A weekly column, carried on AOL's News Channels, frequently drew from her experience as a single parent and member of a large, extended family. In addition, she has appeared as a social commentator on CBS's "Sunday Morning".

Dickinson, who grew up on a small dairy farm in Freeville, New York, currently lives in Chicago with her teenage daughter. A graduate of Georgetown University, Dickinson also has worked as a producer for NBC News and as a freelance writer for publications such as "The Washington Post", "Esquire" and "O" magazine.

Tribune Media Services syndicates "Ask Amy" to newspapers around the world.

Dickinson also occasionally serves as a panelist on the radio game show "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" that is distributed by National Public Radio.
