Betty White: The Original Mary Richards
Original Airdates: Jan. 7-9, 2022
TVC 563.7: From May 2021: New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Armstrong talks to Ed about the early television career of Betty White, including how, in many ways, White lived the life of Mary Richards long before The Mary Tyler Moore Show came into existence. Jennifer’s book When Women Invented Television traces the history of the first decade of network television through the lives and accomplishments of Irna Phillips, Gertrude Berg, Hazel Scott and Betty White. Betty White passed away Friday, Dec. 31, 2021 at age 99.
We are putting together a formal program-length tribute to Betty White that will air later this month on TV Confidential.
