Smith’s charity efforts awarded
Despite having been on E! Entertainment Television and CNN for work, Andrea Smith suddenly turned bashful when she was surprised with an award during the live airing of the Variety Children’s Charity Telethon.
Smith has worked behind the scenes at the telethon for more than a decade. It came as a shock to her when she won the Jay & Judy Rosenberg Award for her efforts.
“It was completely unexpected first of all,” Smith said. “I have been helping with Variety literally since 2001. I have seen others win this award. They hand out one each year during the telethon and it’s awarded to someone who really works behind the scenes, you don’t see them do a lot of interviews and you don’t necessarily see them on TV.”
