About Samantha Harris
The Great White Way continues to heat up this summer when two-time Emmy Award nominee and celebrated TV personality Samantha Harris (“The Insider,” “Dancing with the Stars”) is making her Broadway stage debut in the starring role of Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning hit musical “Chicago” in a six-week limited engagement through Aug. 16, 2009 at the Ambassador Theatre.
Best known to national primetime TV audiences as a correspondent and fill-in anchor on CBS’s “The Insider” and as co-host of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” Harris will also star as Roxie Hart in the Greenville, S.C. engagement of the “Chicago” national tour, Tuesday, Aug. 18 through Sunday, Aug. 23, 2009 at the Peace Center.
Recently, Harris filled in for Meredith Vieira for one week as host of “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire.” Daytime TV viewers have also enjoyed Harris’s contributions as a special correspondent on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and many guest co-host stints on ABC’s “The View,” as well as several appearances on CBS’s “The Early Show.”
Prior to joining “The Insider,” Harris was best known for her four years as a correspondent and fill-in anchor for E! News, where she also co-hosted all award show coverage for the network including Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Emmy Awards.
