"The Reliable Source" columnist Lloyd Grove comes to the Web Fridays at 11 a.m. ET for a live discussion on Washington celebrities and insider gossip.
Grove, a 20-year veteran of The Washington Post, took over The Reliable Source column in the Style section in May 1999.
Grove grew up in Los Angeles and Greenwich, Conn. He was an English major at Yale and worked for the Kansas City Times (now defunct, we think), the Corpus Christi Caller-Times and the Dallas Morning News before joining the Post on the Weekend section, where for a few years he reviewed practically every live theater show that opened in D.C., including a few in church basements.
From there, he joined Style as a general assignment writer with a special interest in politics, and spent a year and a half covering the 1988 presidential campaign for the National staff. In 1991 –- after an ill-advised book leave -– he returned to Style and served as a political reporter, with occasional detours into television and movie coverage. He also has written extensively for Vanity Fair magazine.
