This week’s program will celebrate the life and career of Betty White, the legendary actress who not only was known to four different generations of TV audiences for the characters that she played on The Golden Girls, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Hot in Cleveland—not to mention her many appearances on countless TV game shows, including, most notably, Password and the CBS Match Game—but was one of the very first television stars, period (and, certainly, the First Lady of Television), having appeared on one of the very first experimental television broadcasts in 1939, then also hosting one of the first TV talk shows, Hollywood on Television, in 1949. Betty White passed away on Friday, Dec. 31, at age ninety-nine, just a few days shy of what would have been her 100th birthday.
One of the most enjoyable things about doing this program has been discovering the marvelous and far-reaching impact that Betty White had on television throughout her long and distinguished career. Without question, she was an icon, an institution, and a pioneer… and yet no one word seems enough to describe her. Given her vast appeal to television audiences across a wide array of genres, she also embodied the emotional connection that so many of us have to our favorite TV shows and favorite TV personalities, simply because she was someone that we invited into our homes almost every day, one way or another, throughout our lives.
This week’s program will include tributes from friends and colleagues who worked with Betty White, one way or another, and who will share insight into who she was as a person. Our guests will include Mary Tyler Moore Show historian Jennifer Armstrong; Golden Girls historian Jim Colucci; game show historian Steve Beverly, who interviewed Betty about a dozen times throughout his career as a TV journalist; Geoffrey Mark, who interviewed Betty for his documentary on The Mary Tyler Moore Show; Ray Richmond, author of the last biography on Betty White that was published before she died; and a few other surprises.
