30 Fabulous Portrait Photos of Jan Smithers in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1949 in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, American former actress Jan Smithers first reached the public eye as a teenager when she was profiled and featured on the March 21, 1966 cover of Newsweek seated on the back of a motorcycle. She received offers from Hollywood agents as a result of that appearance.

Smithers is known for playing Bailey Quarters on the CBS sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati (1978–1982). Her first marriage was to Kipp Whitman from 1971 to 1972. From 1986 to 1995, she was married to actor James Brolin.

After living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Smithers now lives in Ojai, California. In June 2014, she attended a reunion of surviving WKRP in Cincinnati cast members hosted by the Paley Center for Media.

Here below is a set of fabulous photos that shows portraits of young Jan Smithers in the 1960s and 1970s.
