At a young age, New York City native Olivia Nuzzi made a name for herself in the media industry. She is so good at her job that, for the first time in her history, New York City magazine chose a correspondent in Washington, D.C., and chose her for the position in January 2016.
Nuzzi is based in the nation’s capital and reports on both the Congress and national politics in the Trump administration. Within a few months of joining New York Magazine, Nuzzi quickly wrote three cover stories, including one about Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. In 2018, Forbes added her to its 30 under 30 media list. Let us take you on a journey that will show you how she got this far in such a short time.
Olivia Nuzzi Bio (Age and Other Background Details)
Nuzzi was born on 6 January 1993 in New York City, New York, as the son of Kelly and the now-deceased John Nuzzi. She grew up in the River Plaza community in Middletown, New Jersey. Her father, John, was employed by the New York City Department of Sanitation for 20 years before his death in December 2015.
After his death, Olivia went to The Daily Beast to dedicate a beautiful play to him. In this article entitled “Remembering My Dad, a Tough Guy With a Big Heart,” Nuzzi’s synopsis said: “My father, John Nuzzi, was complex and beautiful and solid. I wish the world had met him as I did.
Nuzzi has a brother named Jonathan. Her passion for writing developed quite early in life, and as a teenager, she began writing monthly in 2011 in the political columns of triCityNews (an old weekly newspaper based in Asbury Park, New Jersey) and on the politically conservative blog and news website More Monmouth Musings.
She attended Fordham University but dropped out after being hired by The Daily Beast.

Here is a look at 5 other things you need to know about the journalist
1. Nuzzi was the first thrust into the limelight as a subject… We’ll explain.
Journalists often become famous when one of their articles or cover stories is considered spectacular. But Nuzzi gained her first fame through a story in which she appeared not only as an author but also as a subject. The story that actually made it to the front page of the New York Daily News was about her experiences as an intern for Anthony Weiner’s campaign.
In 2013, when Nuzzi was working as an NSFWcorp employee, she simultaneously documented her experiences with Weiner’s mayoral campaign in short blog posts. These posts caught the attention of the New York Daily News, which hired her for a follow-up article.
In this article, Nuzzi spilled many not-so-pleasant things about the campaign, including the fact that the interns worked only for Weiner to endear themselves to Weiner’s wife Huma, a political operative, and Hilary Clinton. She also mentioned that Weiner’s campaign team was made up of mostly inexperienced people.
2. Weiner’s campaign spokeswoman and communications director, Barbara Morgan slammed back at her.
Olivia’s little article in the New York Daily was not well received by many Weiner believers, especially by his campaign spokeswoman Barbara Morgan. Morgan, in an interview with Talking Point’s memo on another subject, fired Nuzzi back, calling her a “f***** bitch,” a “jerk,” a “c*nt,” and a “bitch” who was bad at her job. She added that Nuzzi couldn’t get another job in New York City.
Both women went on Twitter to joke about the situation. Olivia added the vulgar names that Morgan called her to her Twitter biography
3. Contrary to Morgan’s opinion that Olivia would never have a job in New York again, Nuzzi was hired by The Daily Beast in May 2014, where she began reporting on the presidential campaigns of hopefuls like Rand Paul and Chris Christie. During the same period, she achieved her first interview with Donald Trump as his political career progressed.
4. Nuzzi’s efforts during the 2016 presidential campaign resulted in her being named among 15 others on Politico‘s list of 16 outgoing media stars for 2016.
