Talk Show Flashback: Donahue
There was a time in the 80s and 90s where if a person could hold a microphone, they could host a daytime talk show (or at least try). I loved these shows and I still secretly dream of the day when I’ll have my own (are you listening Hollywood?).
Years on the Air
29 years! (1967 to 1996)
Donahue remains the longest continuous run of any syndicated talk show in U.S. television history.
Did you watch?
I always loved when he had celebrity guests. The world events went over my head. But Susan Lucci on the panel--I was there!
