Early Life

Nancy Grace was born on October 23, 1958, in Macon, Georgia. At the age of 19, she was set to enter the academic world as an English professor, but her fiancé, Keith Griffin, was shot and killed, changing the course of her life. Grace abandoned her academic plans and decided to pursue a career in criminal justice. She went on to earn bachelor’s, Juris Doctor, and advanced legal studies degrees from Mercer University and New York University’s School of Law.

After NYU, she taught at the Georgia State University College of Law (and business law at Georgia State’s business school) before joining the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office (Atlanta) as a special prosecutor for over ten years. In retrospect, her cases frequently involved murder, rape, and child molestation — and Grace never lost a case. Grace also volunteered on a battered women’s hotline while in Atlanta.

TV Career

Grace’s track record of handling high-profile cases piqued the interest of Court TV executives, who hired her to host Closing Arguments, the network’s live daily trial coverage show. Later, she co-hosted Cochran and Grace with renowned O.J. Simpson lawyer Johnnie Cochran and found success with the daytime show Swift Justice with Nancy Grace, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.


Grace began hosting a legal-analysis show called Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News in 2005. (now the Headline News network, or HLN). She worked for Court TV until 2007, and for Swift Justice until 2011. Nancy Grace had gained steady momentum by that point, and its host had grown in fame and popularity, owing primarily to her aggressive coverage and discussion of controversial topics of the day, such as the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping, the Duke University lacrosse team rape case, and the Caylee Anthony case.

Grace vehemently expressed her opinions in each of these cases and others, often before there was evidence to back them up, resulting in controversy, backlash, and rising ratings for her show. She has appeared on numerous other shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Good Morning America, and Larry King Live, where she gives her unvarnished opinion on the modern justice system. She has also appeared on Dancing with the Stars, where she came up just short of the semifinal round.

Grace has received several Gracie Awards from American Women in Radio & Television, as well as the organization’s Individual Achievement/Best Program Host honor. Grace has also received widespread recognition for her work and advocacy on behalf of victims’ rights.

New Show, Podcast

Grace hasn’t missed a beat since leaving her show in 2016. The TV personality has been working behind the scenes, immersing herself in her Sirius XM radio crime show, launching her website, and writing the mystery thriller Hailey Dean book series.

Grace admitted in a 2017 interview that she has been enjoying the change that radio brings. “I think the reporters and guests on radio are more open,” she said. “On TV, too many people are preoccupied with their hair and makeup, as well as whether they are sitting up straight. On the radio, I believe people are more honest because it is a more uninhibited environment.”

Grace, on the other hand, hasn’t given up on television entirely. Grace has teamed up with legal analyst Dan Abrams for a live studio audience crime show called Grace vs. Abrams on A&E Network, which will premiere on March 29, 2018, in which the two will debate famous controversial crimes and legal cases.

Other Projects

Grace is the author of three books, Objection! How High-Priced Defense Attorneys, Celebrity Defendants, and a 24/7 Media Have Hijacked Our Criminal Justice System (2005), The Eleventh Victim (2009, fiction), and Death on the D-List (2010, fiction).
