Tina Brown (born Christina Hambley Brown on November 21, 1953, in Maidenhead, England) is a journalist, magazine editor, columnist, talk-show host and author of The Diana Chronicles, a biography of Diana, Princess of Wales, a personal friend. Born a British citizen, she took United States citizenship in 2005. She became the editor-in-chief of Tatler magazine at the age of 25, and rose to prominence in the American media industry as the editor of the magazines Vanity Fair from 1984 to 1992 and of The New Yorker from 1992 to 1998. In 2007, she was named to the Magazine Editors Hall of Fame. She has also been honored with four George Polk Awards, five Overseas Press Club awards, and ten National Magazine Awards. She is currently writing a non-fiction work on Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Tina Brown and her elder brother, Christopher Hambley Brown, grew up in Little Marlow, in Buckinghamshire, on the outskirts of London. Her parents, George Hambley Brown and Bettina Iris Mary (Kohr) Brown, were prominent figures in the British film industry. George produced the first Agatha Christie films starring Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple. His other films included The Chiltern Hundreds (1949); Hotel Sahara (1951), starring Yvonne De Carlo; Guns at Batasi (1964), starring Richard Attenborough and Mia Farrow; and Terror Under the House (1971), starring Joan Collins.

In 1939, George Hambley Brown married the actress Maureen O'Hara, though the marriage, which, according to O'Hara, was never consummated owing to her parents' intervention, was later annulled. George later met and married (1948) Bettina Kohr, who was Laurence Olivier's press agent. In her later years, Bettina worked as a gossip columnist for an English-language magazine for expatriates in Spain, where she and George lived in retirement.
