Born in Lausanne, Switzerland, Radziwiłł was the son of socialite/actress Lee Radziwiłł (younger sister of First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy) and Polish Prince Stanisław Albrecht Radziwiłł. He married a former ABC colleague, Emmy Award-winning journalist Carole DiFalco, on 27 August 1994 on Long Island, New York.
Radziwiłł attended Millfield School and Choate Rosemary Hall preparatory school in Wallingford, Connecticut. In 1982, he finished his studies at Boston University, earning a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism.
Radziwiłł's career began at NBC Sports, as an associate producer. During the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, he contributed Emmy Award-winning work. In 1989, he joined ABC News as a television producer for Primetime Live. In 1990, he won the Peabody Award for an investigation on the resurgence of Nazism in the United States. Posthumously, Cancer: Evolution to Revolution was awarded a Peabody. His work was nominated for two Emmys.
Around 1989 he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and underwent treatment which left him sterile but in apparent remission. However, shortly before his wedding, new tumors emerged. Radziwiłł battled metastasizing cancer throughout his five years of marriage, with his wife, Carole, serving as his primary caretaker through a succession of oncologists, hospitals, operations, and experimental treatments.
The couple lived in New York, and both Radziwiłł and Carole tried to maintain their careers as journalists between his bouts of hospitalization.
Radziwiłł died on August 10, 1999, nearly a month after John Jr., his wife Carolyn and her sister Lauren Bessette died in a plane crash. He was survived by his wife, his mother, and a sister, Anna.
In 2000, his mother, Lee Radziwiłł, and widow, Carole Radziwiłł, set up a fund to help emerging documentary filmmakers. In 2005, Carole wrote an autobiography, focused largely on her marriage to Radziwiłł. Titled, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love (Scribner), the book made The New York Times Best Seller list.
